Italian Sausage Hoagies

I was skeptical of these, but Corey really liked them.  He described them as "like a Subway Italian Meatball Sub....only better and lighter".


Recipe Notes
Corey suggested using provolone cheese in place of mozzarella cheese as well.  Serve with Kettle chips and a salad.

1.  Preheat broiler to high.  Arrange hoagie rolls on a baking sheet and broil until toasted.  Set aside.

3.  Add onion and garlic, cook until softened.
4.  Add marinara, bell pepper, and black pepper.  Bring to a boil.
5.  Reduce heat and simmer for six minutes or until bell pepper is crisp-tender.
