Sausage and Pepper Hero

It's suppose to be 75 degrees here in NY today. It's a bit cloudy but i'll deal with it. I just want some warm weather to stay! 
I love this sandwich. I really, really love this sandwich. The secret to this recipe is slow roasting the sausage and the addition of the roasted peppers. 
1 package Italian Sausages 6 Count - About 1/2 Pound
1 whole Bell Pepper Seeded Sliced Into Half Inch Strips
1 whole Large Vidalia Onion Sliced Into Half Inch Strips
2 cloves Garlic, Smashed And Chopped
1-½ cup Of Your Favorite Marinara Sauce
1 jar 12oz Roasted Red Peppers Sliced Into Half Inch Strips
1 teaspoon Dried Basil
½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
½ teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1 pinch Each, Salt And Pepper (to Taste)
⅛ cups Grated Parmesan Reggiano Cheese
6 Hoagie or Hero rolls

Preparation Instructions
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Heat a large oven proof skillet to medium high heat. Brown sausage links on each side. Once all of the sides are browned, place in an oven proof dish. Roast in oven for 30 minutes.

While sausage is roasting; sauté bell pepper, onion and garlic, for about 10 minutes over medium heat. Once they start to soften, add the cup of sauce, roasted peppers, basil, garlic powder, pepper flakes, salt and pepper, and cheese, continue cooking for 5 more minutes stirring frequently.

Remove sausage from oven, slice into pieces and add the peppers and onions. Return skillet to oven for another 20 minutes until hot and bubbly and sauce is reduced.

Spoon into hero rolls and top with a sprinkle of cheese.
