Submitted by: PJ4SBERG

Introduction

A good way to get your veggies and meat all in one! A good way to get your veggies and meat all in one!
Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    1 package of spicy chicken sausages (as mentioned above, I got the "Spicy Jalapeno Chicken Sausages" from Trader Joe's.
    1 cup prepared whole wheat Farfalle (bow tie) pasta
    2 tbsp prepared pesto sauce (I enjoy Classico brand)
    1/4 cup sundried tomatoes (I don't use the ones in oil, but go ahead if you'd like... just remember to drain them!)
    1 bunch of snap beans (approximately 3 cups. I used a medley of green, purple, and yellow beans)
    1 Summer squash or zucchini
    2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
    1 tbsp olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tbsp fresh chives, minced

Tips

*To cut back on the sodium, make your own pesto or just toss with a bunch of basil, a little Parmesan, and some extra olive oil!*


Directions

Wash veggies and trim edges as needed
Slice squash into 1/4-1/2 inch slices (I use a mandolin)
Mix together the vinegar, oil, garlic, and chives
Toss veggies in the vinegar mix
Using either a grill basket or pan, cook the veggies over prepared grill for 25-30 minutes, to your preferred liking.
Add the sausage onto the grill during the last 10 minutes of the veggies.
While the grill is going, cook noodles according to package
After all is grilled, slice each sausage into 6-8 "bite sized" pieces.
In a large bowl, add noodles, sausage, veggies, and your pesto.
Eat while warm!
