Andouille Sausage Marinara Sub Sandwiches & $100 SWEEPSTAKES

Don’t you just love Mardi Gras? johnsonville-3 (1 of 1) There is something magical and special about New Orleans. I don’t mean the Princess and the Frog either.  I mean there is something truly magical about that place. I don’t know. Could it be the music you hear everywhere you go? Could it be the friendly southern hospitality that you are bound to experience? Perhaps it could be how I magically gain 5 pounds when I go just for a weekend visit? Whatever the case may be, I love New Orleans and have always wanted to go to Mardi Gras. Especially for the sub sandwiches.

johnsonville-4 (1 of 1)

It is on my bucket list to go to New Orleans during Mardi Gras someday. I have been to New Orleans twice and I fall more and more in love with it every time. It is my favorite place in the continental U.S. to eat. Ahhh, you have the wonderful beignets, the delicious seafood, and the oh-so-wonderful sandwiches: from the muffuletta, to the Po Boys, and now, to these Andouille Sausage Marinara Sub Sandwiches that I made using Johnsonville Andouille Sausage. They are super yummy and full of flavor. These subs have everything you could ever want:

  • They take 30 minutes to make.
  • They are perfect make for a family quick dinner or lunch.
  • You can split the sausage in half for more servings and/or flavor. (The package is perforated, so it’s easy to save the extra sausage for later.)
  • They are made with Johnsonville Andouille sausage! Oh, I said that already, huh?

“Why did you choose to use Johnsonville’s sausage, Nicole?” Well, I will tell you, my wonderful reader friends. First, Johnsonville sausage has no fillers, which leaves a juicy and firm texture and taste, this sausage is packed with savory and delicious flavor! Also, Johnsonville only uses top notch cuts of pork to pack in real flavor. Finally, Johnsonville has all types of unique varieties, which include Three-Cheese Italian Style Sausage, Polish Kielbasa Sausage, Smoked Sausage, and Chicken Sausage Italian Style with Cheese, so there’s plenty to choose from.

Andouille Sausage Marinara Sub Sandwiches & $100 SWEEPSTAKES

Andouille Sausage Marinara Sub Sandwiches & $100 SWEEPSTAKES


  • 13.5 oz. package Johnsonville Andouille sausage, each link cut in half 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 24 oz. jar Marinara Sauce
  • 1 tbsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • Hoagie buns
  • Provolone cheese


  1. In a large non-stick sauté pan on medium heat, heat the olive oil and place the Andouille sausage links into the pan. Sear each side of the sausage links. This should take 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add the sliced onions and pepper into the pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and place a lid on top of the sauté pan so the onions and peppers can wilt and cook until translucent. This should take 10 minutes.
  3. Pour in the marinara sauce and stir so the sauce is evenly distributed throughout the entire pan. Add the crushed pepper and Worcestershire sauce and stir. Place the lid back on top and allow cooking for another 10 minutes. The sauce should be simmering.
  4. Warm up the buns and place a link on top of the bun along with a few peppers and onions, fold one piece of the provolone cheese in half and place side by side on top of the link and serve.

    These are looking good. I’m working on developing my very own marinara sauce at the moment – I really love a marinara sauce with meatballs.

    There are a couple New Orleans inspired restaurants up north from where I live that I have had the pleasure of visiting to try their menus. I hear you on the po boys! I went through each po boy on the menu twice!
