- 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.
- 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.
- Stir in vinegar and then return sausage to skillet; toss to combine.
- 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.
