It wouldn't be summer without street fairs and festivals with Italian sausage and pepper sandwich stands. This sandwich can make anytime summertime -- using Portebello mushrooms in place of the sausage.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small bell pepper, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 small Portobello mushroom cap, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1/2 tomato, chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 (6-inch) hogie or submarine sandwich roll
Helpful Tip:

Make it Faster:
Instead of using a fresh bell pepper use 1/2 cup frozen peppers.

Instead of fresh onion, 1/2 cup frozen, chopped onions may be substituted.
