This month playing around with the al fresco® chicken sausage recipes, I came up with a spin on a recipe that is one of my kids favorites, a grilled Italian style sausage heroe!  We always get these when we are at the local end-of-summer carnival, and now I can make a healtier version of this right at home, and it has all the flavor and taste of the carnival heroes!

Grilled Chicken Sausage Heroes
Non-Stick cooking spray
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 package Alfresco chicken sausages (I used sweet Italian)
1 red bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1 green bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1 sweet onion (thinly sliced)
1 pkg Baby Bella mushrooms (thinly sliced)
4 Italian sandwich rolls
4 Slices of reduced fat provolone cheese
1 bottle of Pizza sauce
1. Spray grill with non-stick cooking spray, and grill sausages, until nicely browned and chared.
2.  Heat oil in skillet, and add peppers, onions, and mushrooms to the pan, and cook until tender and slightly caramelized.
3. To Serve: Place a slice of cheese and a sausage on each roll and top with peppers, onion, and mushrooms, and then top with pizza sauce.

This is simply amazing!

I like the addition of the baby bella mushrooms-I've never tried that but will now-thanks for such a great post with a wonderful recipe.

Sounds Good, but I would use regular yellow onions, I'm not too keen on sweet onions.

About Me
I have grown up with an appreciation for food, my Dad was a head chef and owned his own restaurant. I can remember at the age of 8, eating frogs legs and him telling me it was chicken...and I didn't know the difference! He always had me and my sister at least try what he was making, even if he knew we wouldn't like it. Well his love for cooking has definitely rubbed off on me. I find I am the happiest when I am in my kitchen cooking something wonderful for my family and friends. Everyone thinks cooking is so hard, but really it is one of those things that the more you do it, the better you get at it. There is nothing more satisfying for me then to hear, "Oh my gosh, that was so good...how did you make that"! I only hope I can have the same influence now on my son that my father had on me.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook spicy foods, especially Cajun or Creole, my signature dish is Cajun Jambalaya. I make a pretty tasty Mexican lasagna as well. I am just learning how to make my own bread. I find there is something really special about making fresh homemade bread from your own hands, getting the yeast to rise, kneading it, and watching it rise!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite time of year to cook is the holidays, everyone is so festive! My parents have a Christmas Eve drop in every year, and I spend the entire day cooking with my Dad helping him prepare! I also love baking Christmas cookies, spending the entire weekend baking and listening to Christmas music...this past year it even snowed! As for starting my own cooking tradition, well that has been baking family birthday cakes from scratch. I never really thought of myself as a baker, but after making a few birthday cakes it has now become expected in my family….and I love it, it’s much more personal! I’d actually get my feelings hurt now if they wanted a store bought cake!
My cooking triumphs
Well I have to say my biggest cooking triumph has been a Tiramisu Cheesecake, it was the first cheesecake I ever made...and let me just say, it was THE BEST I have ever had...I even impressed my Dad!
My cooking tragedies
Hands down...homemade pasta! I tried to make a fresh spinach pasta for a seafood dish, and it turned out to be a gross, green, sticky, pile of dough! I wont even attempt to make my own pasta again!
