I’m pretty sure we all love meals that meet this general description:  quick, healthy, satisfying, and tasty!

Those happy adjectives definitely apply to these sausage and pepper hoagies and that’s why this recipe is always near the top of my list of go-to quickie meals.

These simple sandwiches take just minutes to make and they are absolutely packed with big flavors.

To be 100% honest, my fussy kids usually pick the peppers and onions off of their buns and it ends up more like a simple meatball sub for them. But, all pepper-picking-off aside, I’m just tickled that they at least love the delicious combination of Italian sausage, marinara and provolone cheeses.

I’m also tickled when I watch them enjoy a modest homemade meal as if it was gourmet takeout!

hope your family enjoys this no-fuss meal as much as mine does.

August is National Sandwich Month, y’all and I posted this recipe to share with lots of other talented bloggers that participate in the Sunday Supper Movement recipe share events.
