A BBQ can typically mean serving lots of people and spending quite a bit of money.
At the ones we have or attend, everyone brings something that way it makes it easier for the host/hostess and they don’t feel as if they’re doing all the work or spending all the money Besides, it’s so much fun to try new dishes and and then ask the person who brought it for the recipe!

Sausage Veggie Pasta Salad

Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 1 box Classic style Suddenly Salad
  • 1 package Hillshire Farms American Craft Smoky Bourbon Sausage, grilled and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 red pepper, cored and chopped
  • 1 small head of broccoli, chopped small
  • 2 ears shucked corn
  • Sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • Seasoning packet from Suddenly Salad
  • Scallions and pieces of red pepper for garnish, if desired

Instructions

  1. In a medium pot, boil enough water to submerge the two ears of corn.
  2. Boil for 5 minutes and remove to drain.
  3. When cooled enough to handle, cut the kernels of corn off the cob.
  4. Place into a large bowl.
  5. Add red pepper, broccoli, and sausage.
  6. Cook pasta according to package directions, but DO NOT rinse.
  7. When cooled slightly, add to veggies and sausage and mix well.
  8. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, prepared mustard and Suddenly Salad seasoning packet.
  9. Pour over pasta mixture and toss until well combined.
  10. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
  11. Garnish with scallions and additional red pepper, if desired.

Notes

My family thought it was too creamy. So, if you want less sauce, use the following: 1 cup mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons prepared mustard, 2 tablespoons white vinegar and the packet of Suddenly Salad Classic seasoning mix

LOOK at all those gorgeous vegetables!! And the fresh corn was a great addition!
If you’re going to opt for frozen corn, thaw it completely and use 1 cup.

We’re going to need a bigger bowl…
Add the sausage and pasta…

I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best and this Sausage Veggie Pasta Salad earned 3 rolling pins.
I think next time I make it I’ll use the other version of the dressing I described in the recipe.
We loved the variety of the flavors from the pasta and the veggies and the Hillshire Farms sausage was delicious in it.
The fresh corn in it was really good, too. Besides, corn on the cob just screams summer.
