Italian Sausage Sandwiches

I made these for my son's little league team. I forgot to take a picture of them but the next time i make them I will post one. They are a huge hit every time I make them.

20 Italian sausages
4 large green peppers, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can (12 ounces) tomato paste
1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
20 sandwich buns
Shredded mozzarella cheese, optional


In a large Dutch oven, brown sausages a few at a time; discard all but 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute peppers and onion in drippings until crisp-tender; drain. Return sausages to pan along with tomato paste, tomato sauce, water, sugar, garlic, basil, oregano and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve on buns. Top with cheese if desired. Yield: 20 servings."

Reminds me of the ones at the State Fair.

I was shocked the kids loved them at little league, you always get one kid who complains about something but no one did.
