Most commonly, we purchase rolls at our local Italian market, spread them with Homemade Garlic Butter and toast them in the oven. Fill each roll with sausage and peppers, top with a slice or two of cheese and broil until the cheese starts to melt.

To serve this recipe over pasta, slice the sausages once cooked (and don’t skip the tomatoes). Toss with cooked pasta and top with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and fresh basil to serve!

Italian salad makes a great side dish if you’re hoping to keep things low carb. It’s a healthy and delicious meal!

Leftover Sausage and Peppers

Store leftovers in the fridge for 3-4 days in an airtight container. To reheat Italian sausages, cut them in half (to allow steam to escape) and microwave or cook on the stove top until heated through. If using the stove top, I’d suggest cooking the sausages first until almost hot and then adding the peppers at the end to keep them from overcooking.

Leftovers can be frozen for up to 3 months. They can be reheated as directed above or even chopped and added to pasta sauce or marinara sauce to create an easy meal!
