The best healthy Italian sausage sandwiches with onions and mushrooms - Smothered in tomato sauce and vegetables, these sweet or spicy sausages are perfect for families' dinners or lunches. Simple and easy to prepare.

Doesn’t that photo make your mouth water? It does mine.

We made our sausage sandwiches healthier than most, but you’ll never notice.

Is there a single person in America who is unaffected by heart disease?

I can’t imagine that there is.

My friend, Sara, lost her mother a few years ago to a heart attack. It was a complete shock; her mom was just in her fifties. I remember the disbelief so clearly. She was so young and so healthy.

I was less shocked by my mom’s cancer diagnosis than by Sara’s mom’s heart attack.

My experience with heart disease doesn’t end there. My mother-in-law has had a heart bypass. Both my father and father-in-law have had serious heart attacks.

Both Joe and I have high blood pressure. I was diagnosed when I was just fifteen. My blood pressure put me on strict bedrest when I was pregnant.

Heart health is a constant concern.

I know that I have a strong family history of heart disease. 

I know that obesity increases the chances of heart disease. I know that a sedentary lifestyle makes it worse still.

My health is one of my biggest motivators in my weight loss efforts.

To say we’ve made changes to our lifestyle to be more heart healthy would be inaccurate; this is just how we live.

We eat a low sodium diet, made mostly of whole, fresh foods. We don’t have a salt shaker on the table, preferring to use other herbs and flavorings in cooking and serving.

When we do use convenience foods, we always choose the low sodium version, like Prego Heart Smart Italian Sauces.
