Crock-Pot Easy Italian Sausage & Pepper Sandwiches
Whenever I need a quick and easy recipe that I can toss in the slow cooker, let it cook away while I am busy doing other things this recipe for Italian sausages and peppers is one of my go-to recipes. It is so stinking easy that you almost don’t need a recipe.
But because this is a food blog…a recipe IS kind of important.
But basically you throw some Italian sausage links (hot or mild…up to you!) into your slow cooker along with some sliced bell peppers and onions, and a jar of your favorite marinara sauce.
Let that all cook away for 6 to 8 hours and then serve the sausage links on your favorite submarine/hoagie roll with some cheese. I like shaved Parmesan but I hear that sliced provolone or mozzarella is nice too and ends up being more melty than parm is. But I think the tang and sharpness that Parmesan cheese has is just divine.
My kids really like this recipe too and in fact last time I made it my 12 year old son Liam said that it was “the BEST” and asked for seconds.
I usually serve this with a quickly tossed together salad and usually some chips. Chips are a treat in our house but we adhere to the “everything in moderation” philosophy in life. 🙂
Also…this recipe can also be prepped ahead of time as a slow cooker freezer meal…it is SO EASY and I have included the instructions for the freezer meal in the notes section of the recipe below.
And one more thing…if you are on a gluten free diet…look for gluten free options on the sausages (the ones from Zaycon Fresh are gluten free) and use your favorite GF marinara sauce and serve on GF rolls (Schär and Udi’s both make them).
