I love slow cooker recipes; especially for those busy days where the thought of preparing dinner sounds exhausting. This one is extra nice, because the prep work is fast and easy. You can easily throw this together before you go to work or start your day. I adapted this recipe from the May 2011 edition of Woman's Day Magazine. I love the versatility of this recipe as well (see tips). If you make these yummy hoagies, please let me know what you think!
Sometimes, I do not drain the tomatoes, and I add up to a pound more of the sausages. If you decide to try this, just make sure you serve it with a slotted spoon.
For those who do not eat pork, I have made this with an Italian poultry sausage. The results were excellent!
You can also serve this open-faced sandwich style. Toast thick slices of bread, and place the meat-veggie mixture on the toast. Top with cheese.
You can use any cheese you desire: asiago, goat cheese, feta, mozzarella...
