Crock-pot Sausage: An Italian staple

Sausage can be cooked in many wondrous ways. Some like the crunchy, slightly burnt boardwalk style that was made famous on the Jersey Shore. Some like it sliced into pennies and thrown into their lasagna. My favorite way is in the crock-pot. It comes out tender, moist, and flavorful.
The ingredients are simple, and the recipe is perfect for amateur cooks, or just harried mothers on the go.
You need:
2 Large onions
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
Enough sweet Italian sausage to feed your crew – think about 2 links per person
2 jars of your favorite marinara spaghetti sauce
16 oz of water
Mozzarella cheese
Enough hoagie rolls to house each sausage

First, you peel and cut your onions in half, then slice the halves into thin strips. Arrange all of the onions into a layer on the bottom of the crock-pot.
Next, you core your peppers, and rinse the excess seeds out. Cut each pepper in half, then again into thin strips. Place this layer over the onions.
Take your Italian sausage, and place them on top of the peppers.
Pour the marinara sauce over the sausage, and add the water.
Cover the crock-pot with the lid, and set to cook for 4 hours. Check every hour or so to make sure the water hasn’t cooked out. Feel free to add more if needed.
Put a small amount of the onions and peppers onto a hoagie roll, and place the sausage onto the roll. Next, ladle some sauce onto all, and top with mozzarella cheese.
Finally – enjoy!
