Pasta with Grilled Sausage & Veggies
I love summer for all of the yummy garden vegetable. There are so many ways to cook them & I love discovering new ways to serve them. Grilling the vegetables & Italian sausage & adding them to pasta is an amazing way to serve them. This dish was a hit.
Italian Sausage (hot or mild)
1 green bell pepper, seeded & halved
1 red bell pepper, seeded & halved
1 yellow squash, halved
1 zucchini, halved
1/4 c balsamic or Italian dressing
Salt & Pepper
Light grill. Place vegetables in a large bowl & pour dressing over. Baste until all the pieces are covered. Let the vegetables sit. Cook Italian sausage on the grill for 8 minutes, turn frequently. Add the vegetables, turn frequently. Baste the vegetables with the dressing while they cook. Continue to cook sausage & vegetables until cooked through (15-20 minutes). Remove from grill. Allow to rest. In a large pot cook spaghetti until al dente. Drain, reserving about 1 cup of the pasta water. Chop sausage & vegetables. Add into the spaghetti. Toss with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil & enough of the reserved pasta water to moisten. Sprinkle with salt, pepper & parmesan cheese.
