This is a very simple sandwich served in most all the Italian eatery's we have in town. If you love peppers & eggs this is sure to please your taste buds. The star of this sandwich is of course the peppers.

I really want to taste the peppers so I normally don't add any onions just some garlic & cheese to this sandwich. This is a comfort food to meal and one satisfying sandwich served up for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
