The meal started as spaghetti with sausage and peppers (one of my favorites) and descended into different sandwiches fit to each of our picky tastes. I initially revved up the stove for my son, who usually has ne'er a vegetable pass his lips--except spaghetti sauce (you can hide a LOT of vegetables in there. NOTE: Spinach looks just like basil. Muhaha.). But, as I started the water boiling, my son
Red sauce (don't judge-- Hunt's has no HFC and it's cheap)
Can o' beer (don't hate on my crappy beer-- it's just for cooking)
Bread of choice (I used sourdough) or Noodles
Mozzarella cheese (or provolone would work nicely, as well)
the sausages in beer. I suppose you could do this in water or broth but my husband's German and I'm Irish, so beer is inevitable.
all the ingredients into bite-sized pieces (nothing worse than getting a long, slimy pepper slapping you in the face)
them all 'til they start to brown a bit
bread and place on a foil-lined cookie sheet
sausage mixture on toasted bread (the middle one's for my daughter, who probably wouldn't dig peppers and onions)
some sauce on there (if you so desire. My husband, who's a freak, doesn't like red sauce too much.)
in cheese. (Need I say more?)
'til golden brown
Sausage "pizza" toast points
Sausage, peppers n cheese sandwich (no sauce)
sausage, pepper and onions, sauce-y open-faced cheesy goodness with peperoncini's. Noms.
