Sauce and Grilled Sausage

Jul 14

Summer is the perfect time to grill and when the hubby really gets to cooking! He’ll be outside at the grill, and I’m normally inside with sides and the like.

But with my mom’s sauce recipe, we used pasta and sauce as the base and just added the grilled sausage on top. Perfect, easy meal for the summer! And there will be lots of leftover sauce.
