           ---           ------ITALIAN SAUSAGE
    1       lb           Italian sweet sausage, remo
    2       ts           Olive oil
      1/2   lb           Mushrooms, sliced
      1/4   c            Chopped onions
    1                    Red bell pepper, roasted, s
    6       oz           Jar marinated artichoke hea
    8                    Kalamata olives, pitted & c
    2                    Garlic cloves, chopped
    6                    Plum tomatoes, cut into 1/4
      1/2   ts           Italian seasoning
    4       tb           Chopped fresh basil
                         Salt & freshly ground black
    8                    Small or 4 large French sou
    4       tb           Grated Romano cheese
   Brown sausage slowly, rendering as much grease as
   possible. Submerge sausage in boiling water for 10-15
   seconds to allow more grease to float away. Saute
   mushrooms, onions, red pepper, artichoke hearts,
   olives, garlic in olive oil until crisp-tender, about
   3-4 minutes. Add tomatoes, Italian seasoning, basil
   and sausage. Reduce heat and simmer until it is of the
   right consistency. Add salt & pepper to taste.
   Meanwhile, cut tops off rolls and hollow them out.
   Then place in 350F oven for a few minutes until crusts
   are crisp. Fill each roll with sausage/vegetable
   mixture. Sprinkle Romano atop each roll and place
   under broiler just until cheese starts to melt. Serve
   this alongside a green salad with Italian dressing*
   and a glass of Bardolino or Chianti. *If you make your
   own Italian dressing, save the artichoke marinade to
   mix into the dressing. Serves 4. Enjoy.
