  • 2 14 1/2 ounce cans  fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 28  ounce can  crushed tomatoes
  • 1  tablespoon  balsamic vinegar
  • 6  cloves garlic, minced
  • 2  teaspoons  dried basil, crushed
  • 1  teaspoon  dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  crushed red pepper
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 10  French-style rolls or hoagie buns, split
  • 10  slices  provolone cheese, halved
  • 3/4  cup  roasted red sweet peppers, drained and cut into thin strips

1. Place sausage links in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. For sauce, stir in undrained diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, vinegar, garlic, basil, oregano, salt, crushed red pepper, and black pepper.

2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.
