EASY ITALIAN SLOPPY JOES RECIPE

This is a fun twist on your usual sloppy Joe recipe. Instead of having that more typical barbecue-like flavor, these have an Italian-inspired twist. If you enjoy sausage and peppers then you will love this version of Sloppy Joes!

TIPS FOR MAKING THIS SAUSAGE AND PEPPERS SANDWICH

  • You can go with a sweet Italian ground sausage or spicy. It all depends on your family’s preference.
  • My favorite spaghetti sauce is Rao’s Tomato and Basil sauce but please use your family’s favorite spaghetti sauce or marinara sauce.
  • We prefer the soft brioche buns for this. Sometimes you can find them in the bakery section of your grocery store. Regular hamburger buns can be used.
  • Want to make it extra decadent? Try adding a slice of mozzarella cheese to your sandwiches!
