Home cooking is a privilege for college students, most have to wait till Christmas or Easter for “real” food. Chipotle and &Pizza are delicious, but sometimes the best meals come from grandma. That’s why I asked mine for recipes that give the feel of “real” food but are still cheap and easy enough for anyone to make. The hope is for this to be a series of meals anyone can create, to provide a little feel of home during our studies.
Italian Sausage and Peppers
1 lb. of Italian sweet or hot sausage links
1 yellow pepper sliced in 1/2” stripes
1 orange pepper sliced in 1/2” stripes
1 medium onion sliced in 1/2 “ stripes
1/2 pint grape tomatoes
Garlic powder or 4 cloves garlic chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Italian sub rolls
Sliced Provolone cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Place sausage, peppers, garlic, and onion in a bowl and toss with olive oil. Cover a sheet pan or cookie sheet with foil and spread the sausage and vegetables evenly on the pan. Using a fork, prick the sausages. Sprinkle the oregano over the links and vegetable mixture.
Place in the oven for 30 minutes and then turn the sausages. Roast for 15-20 additional minutes.
Place sausages and vegetables in rolls, cover with provolone cheese, and place in the oven for 1-2 minutes or until cheese melts.
