Italian Sausage Sandwiches

The recipe says mild Italian sausage but I used a mix of mild and hot Italian sausage. It came in 6 inch links so I didn't have to cut it. I sautéed the pepper mix in a frying pan for convenience and cut the peppers into strips. Finally, I simmered the sausage in the marinara sauce for about 45 minutes. It turned out perfectly. Hope you guys like it too.
