We're ready for a party or just a really hungry crowd. Enjoy the hero as is or serve the filling over whole wheat couscous or brown rice.


Olive oil cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Uncooked turkey sausage

8 oz, red bell pepper and basil variety, cut into 1/2-in

Olive oil

1 tsp(s)

Minced garlic

1 tbsp(s), or to taste

Vidalia onion

1 medium, thinly sliced

Red bell pepper

1 medium, thinly sliced

Green bell pepper

1 medium, thinly sliced

Balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp(s)

Italian bread

8 oz, about 1 medium loaf


  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Sauté sausage until browned, about 5 minutes; remove to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  2. Add oil to same skillet and heat for about 45 seconds; add garlic and sauté until golden, about 30 seconds. Add onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add peppers and sauté until vegetables are softened, about 6 to 8 minutes more.
  3. Stir in vinegar and then return sausage to skillet; toss to combine.
  4. Split bread lengthwise—almost, but not all the way through; fill with sausage mixture. Cut into 4 equal pieces and serve. Yields 1/4 of hero per serving.
