Sausage and Pepper Subs

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 12 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)
This sandwich uses thick slices of sausage instead of fussy meatballs. It's messy, so serve it with a knife and fork.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 12 ounces sweet Italian turkey sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
  • 3 cups frozen bell pepper stir-fry, thawed (such as Bird's Eye)
  • 1 (12-ounce) bottle marinara sauce
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 4 (2 1/2-ounce) hoagie rolls, split lengthwise
