  4. Slice the Italian sausage into thick rounds and then add them to the skillet along with any juices from the plate.
  5. Remove the cover and add the sausages back to the skillet along with the beef broth. Cook, uncovered for another 7-8 minutes until the sausage and potatoes are cooked through.
  6. Serve on sub rolls, with or without cheese or on top of your favorite pasta.
