I have made these sandwiches twice and we love them. I use spicy chicken sausage from Trader Joe's. I always add more onion and red peppers to the mixture. I heat some extra sauce as I like them a bit saucier than my husband. Last night I made the Spinach and Mozzarella Salad (CL March 2012) for the side dish.
