Sausage, peppers, and onions

Sausage, peppers, and onions

This has to be one of my favorite meals to serve on the weekend. I love that it’s easy to prepare. It is so delicious served on a roll sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. My husband Joe gets the rolls from a local bakery. They make their rolls from scratch every day. They are such a treat.
