Last Taste of Summer

As Fall approaches we are running out of warm grilling nights, last night was one of those nights so I fired up the BBQ threw on some veggies and whipped together this grilled Pasta Salad.  Now if only the nights will stay like this. 

Warm Pasta Salad with Italian Turkey Sausage

Non-stick Cooking Spray
5 Tablespoons Olive Oil
6 Tablespoons Red-Wine Vinegar
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 teaspoon Dried Oregano ( I used Italian Seasoning)
3/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
2 Plum Tomatoes, halved lengthwise
1 Eggplant, cut into 1/2 inch slices
1 Large Red Onion, cut into 1/2 inch slices
2 Italian Turkey Sausages
8 oz Wagon Wheel Pasta

1. Prepare Grill and coat with non-stick cooking spray.  For dressing, whisk together 4 Tablespoons of the olive oil, the vinegar, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper.  Set aside.
2.Brush tomatoes, eggplant, and onion with the remaining olive oil.  Pierce sausages several times with the point of a small knife.  Grill vegetables and sausages, turning often, until sausages are done and veggies are tender.
3. Meanwhile cook pasta according to package, drain and place in a large bowl.
4. Remove vegetables from grill and chop into bite-size pieces, cut sausages into coins. Add to pasta and drizzle the dressing and toss to coat.
