Take-out Tuesday, Sheet Pan Sausage & Marinara Sandwiches

This really is a weeknight easy, very satisfying sandwich that is a meal in itself

Simple ingredients, easy prep

The vegetables and sausage roast together on a sheet pan

Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast in the oven

While sausage and vegetables are cooking, simmer sauce with seasonings, or use homemade sauce

Cut the bread into 6 inch lengths, and slice in half horizontally, not quite all the way through, leaving one side attached

Spread butter on the inside of rolls and sprinkle with garlic powder and a generous amount of Parmesan cheese

Place in toaster or broil until golden and cheese has melted, and keep warm

Lay 3 links of sausage on each bread bottom

Top with onions and tomatoes

Cover with hot marinara and sprinkle with more cheese

Garnish with fresh basil which I always seem to forget to do if desired
