easy sausage sandwiches.

I will preface this posting with two points. 1. Since school started for the quarter, My cooking has reduced to what i can make in 30 minutes or less. This is fine, there is a pretty rich lady named Rachael Ray who got rich off this concept. but dont expect a lot of fancy pantsy stuff until winter break. 2. Sandwiches are THE perfect food of all time.

I like this recipe because it has veggies that are so good, you barely know they are veggies.

Italian sausage links (or sausage of choice)
french bread rolls

for the veggies
1 onion, sliced thinly
1 bell pepper, also sliced thinly
about 3 cups shredded cabbage
1 shredded carrot
1/4 cup red wine vinegar (or white wine vinegar, cider vinegar, or rice wine get the point)
chili flakes (optional and to your taste)

cook the sausage and toast the rolls. if the rolls are not pre-cut, try cutting them almost in half, rather than in half, that way the veggies don't fall all over your lap.

in a deep pan, heat a little oil. add the onion and bell pepper, cook until soft. add the cabbage and continue to cook, tossing occasionaly, until browned and caramelized. add salt, chili flakes and vinegar. cook about 5 minutes more.

assemble sandwiches, two sausages and a big pile of veggies. if you wish you can melt some cheese on top in the broiler. this would also be good without the cabbage, and with roasted or sliced tomatoes. or tomato sauce and cheese. sun dried tomatoes could be good in there. this is why i love sandwiches. they can be anything!
