From the Test Kitchen

This recipe calls on the classic pairing of Italian sausages, loaded with sweet and aromatic flavor, and sweet peppers. We’re cooking the peppers with onion and fresh tomatoes and then adding in the browned sausages before piling it all onto rustic ciabatta rolls. Roasted wedges of Prince of Orange potatoes (an especially creamy, orange-tinged variety) make for a simple, satisfying side.
