Sausage Hoagies

Here is a super easy weeknight meal that my husband always looks forward to. I'm sorry, but even a monkey can make this, if I monkey would use a knife.

What I do:
Take two packages of Johnsonville or other "italian" sausage links. I usually get one Sweet and one Hot, so there is some variety in the pot.
Cut each raw link into four chunks and put in a crock pot.
Slice one medium onion, and put it in the pot.
If I have them, I slice two bell peppers in various colors (red and green are very festive) and throw them in, too.
Top with an entire jar of your favorite pasta sauce.
Fill the same jar halfway with water (at the same time, rinsing the jar for the recycle bin!) and pour the water in the pot.Cook on low while you're at work.
Come home to a house that smells like a great little corner deli and serve your sausage up on hoagie rolls with parmesan cheese. Yum!
Its a perfect meal for a cold weeknight. Makre sure you check the pot as soon as you get home, and don't go shopping after work or anything, because if you leave these in too long, they will scorch and be less appetizing.

Thanks for posting a simple recipe that would elicit WOWs at my house. But I'm mainly commenting today to express my gratitude for introducing me to shelfari! I read a LOT and am always looking for new ways to find new authors and books. I love this concept and had not seen it before.

Definitely a husband-pleaser recipe!! My husband is a big fan of kielbasa/smoked sausage right now. I think he eats it once a week when I'm gone.

Yum and yum. They make terrific turkey sausage and I've never tried it in the slow cooker. Since that's my current infatuation, I'm going to put this on next week's shopping list.

This monkey is going to make this! I don't cook, so the Tyler Florence stuff is way too complicated, but I can do this, and even at 6:00 a.m. in the morning, it sounds delicious!
