Nonstick cooking spray

8 Italian sausage links (sweet, hot or a combination), halved crosswise

10 baby bell peppers (8 whole, 2 thinly sliced)

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt

1 cup pennette or other small pasta

2 cups baby spinach

1/4 cup pitted green olives, sliced

1 clove garlic, grated or minced

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


  1. Heat a grill pan over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Thread 2 sausage halves and 1 whole baby bell pepper onto each of 8 metal skewers. Brush the kebabs with 1 tablespoon olive oil and grill, turning as needed and covering the pan halfway through cooking, until marked all over, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs. Combine the 2 sliced baby bell peppers, the spinach, olives, garlic, basil and the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large bowl; toss to coat. Drain the pasta and immediately transfer to the bowl with the spinach mixture; toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper and top with the cheese. Serve the pasta salad with the kebabs.
