4 (2-ounce) hoagie rolls, halved lengthwise
9 ounces sweet turkey Italian sausage, cut into 1-inch-thick pieces
1/2 cup prechopped onion
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
1 cup lower-sodium marinara sauce (such as Amy's)
1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2.25 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 1/2 cup)


1. Preheat broiler to high.

2. Hollow out top halves of rolls. Arrange rolls, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. Broil 1 1/2 minutes or until toasted. Set aside.

3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage to pan; cook 2 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Add onion and garlic; cook 1 minute. Add marinara, bell pepper, and black pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 6 minutes or until bell pepper is crisp-tender.

4. Arrange about 3/4 cup sausage mixture over bottom half of each roll; sprinkle each serving with about 2 tablespoons cheese. Place on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Top with top halves of rolls.
