I like my Sausage and Peppers Neat, please!

Yeah, you've done it...gotten yourself a big ol' sloppy and drippy sausage and peppers submarine. You probably used like 3-4 napkins. Well, I have a NEATER alternative for you. Just dip and bite!

Neat Sausage and Peppers Sandwich

1 lb package of hot italian turkey sausage
29 oz can diced tomatoes (basil, oregano flavored)
1 package frozen peppers and onions
1 can Pillsbury bread sticks
mozzarella you have on hand

Cook your sausages with the skins on. You can bake yours or put them in a skillet. I used my George Forman Grill to have them drain of the fat rather cooking it in. While the sausage is cooking, put your can of diced tomatoes and frozen peppers and onions in a pan to cook. You are cooking the tomato mixture long enough to cook off all the liquid. Taste your sauce and add any extra italian seasoning, salt, etc. if you desire. Your sausage should be cooked through at the same time the tomatoes have cooked off their extra liquid. Turn off your tomato mixture while your sausages cool. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Open your breadsticks, you have 12 in your can to cover 5 sausages. I used about 2-1/2 per sausage.

Bake your dough covered sausages as the package directions called for (12 minutes). While you are preparing your side salad to go with your sausage rolls (just a SUGGESTION, lol). Get your mozzarella ready to put on top of rolls.

Put on top of rolls when baking complete just to melt the cheese. Heat up your sauce and put in little side dishes.

Bite into your sausage roll....

Take your fork and pile on some sausage and peppers with each bite. Much neater this way, no DRIPS!

A great meal with happy bellies, this is the typical scene after dinner...Daddy and Pookie hanging out on the futon....

LOL....K-man told me to take this picture. He's sticking out his gut on purpose. He wanted me to tell you that not only did this meal taste great but it made him happy that it was healthy for him! Now where are those brownies!

In closing....such a sweet face...
