Italian Sausage Sandwiches

This is one of our favorite go to recipes. It's really easy and SO yummy!! I have a hard time eating pork or beef sausage - but we love either the chicken sausage from Trader Joes or Al Fresco. We buy a variety of them when they're on a good sale (especially when I have $1/1 coupons!! and they sometimes go on a really good sale at Fred Meyer!) and keep them in the freezer. The chicken sausage has REALLY good flavor and doesn't upset my stomach like beef and pork sausage does. We use them in all sorts of meals, pasta and sometimes just throw them on the grill for a quick dinner. Anyway...back to the recipe. I've made this for company and everyone really enjoys it! Hope you do too!!!
