Instant Lunch (Italian Sausage Sandwich)


I still haven’t made any new bone broth, so DH’s request for soup for lunch was a no-go. 

His other fave is sausage, so with five cooked links in the freezer, it was easy to put one in a shallow pan of water and let it gently thaw and heat.  

Meanwhile I sautéed up some mushrooms, onions, and green peppers, then toasted a couple of bolillos (Mexican French bread) for the base. 

I had a bit of jarred pasta sauce in the refrigerator, so I cut the heated sausage lengthwise, and put the halves on a plate.  After it had cooled a bit, I poured the thawing water (there were just a few tablespoons) into the jar of sauce to get it all out, poured the sauce into a pan, put the split sausage to heat in the sauce and absorb the flavor.  Then I put one half of the sausage onto each half of  the roll, topped with the veggies, and poured the sauce over everything.   A topping of freshly-shredded mozzarella set it off nicely. 

The less conversation during lunch indicates the greater enjoyment.  This lunch was completely silent until one half had been consumed!  A success!
