This is a favorite of my sons. They like more “kick” so add sliced jalapeno peppers on top of the finished product. If you buy Italian sausage in links, slice open the casing to remove the meat and use a spatula to break into small pieces as you brown the meat.
1 pound Italian sausage
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
1 cup diced green peppers
1/2 cup diced celery
1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
1. Saute sausage until brown, drain. Add onions, garlic, mushrooms, green pepper, celery and saute until tender.
2. Cut pita bread in half. Stuff with warm filling. Sprinkle with cheese
3. Place upright (cut side up) – I use a loaf pan and line with aluminum foil for easy clean-up
4. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
