Italian Sausage Grinders

I made these the other night, very tasty but I suppose I could cut back on a few calories and use turkey sausage, or another one I will try next time is a sweet italian style chicken sausage by Alfresco all natural with fresh red and green peppers, gluten free and 70% less fat.  I have cooked with this product before and enjoyed.

1 pound of hot or sweet Italian sausage
28 ounce can of crushed Italian tomatoes
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
2 cloves garlic
1 small onion, diced
1 small green pepper, sliced in strips
olive oil
4 hoagie rolls
provolone cheese

In a saucepan crumble the sausage and cook until no longer pink, drain. Add the Italian tomatoes, and spices. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.

In a small fry pan add the oil along with the onions, garlic and sliced green pepper. Cook until almost tender.
Arrange your hoagie rolls on a baking sheet and spoon the meat mixture on top of one half of the roll, divide up the green pepper & onion mixture on top of the meat mixture and lay slices of provolone cheese on top. Broil this until the cheese is melted. Watch closely as to not burn.
