Grilled Chicken Sausage Pasta

[FTC Standard Disclaimer] We received no compensation for this post.

This was a quick and easy dish that we whipped up this weekend after Alexis bought some chicken sausage from Costco that had artichoke, garlic, and mozzarella. The sausages looked and sounded delicious, so I wanted to use them some way other than just grilled and thrown in a bun.

In the Summer, I like to keep my pasta dishes simple and on the light side in terms of sauces. The only sauce in this dish is the butter and juices from the sauteed vegetables, which totally works. The Sabatino's sausages were boldly flavored and juicy, but you could probably swap out any fully-cooked chicken sausages, and it would work in this recipe.

Grilled Sirloin Steak with Sweet and Sour Vegetables

[FTC Standard Disclaimer]  I received a free sample of Dizzy Pig Spicy Pineapple Head in the mail. The approximate value is $0.62, so I think we're safe from undue influence on this one. 😋

Sirloin steaks are my red-headed stepchild. There's nothing wrong with them, but I have a hard time turning down the well-marbled ribeye steaks and NY strips that my grocery store routinely offers. But with COVID-19 affecting things, I need to shed some quarantine pounds, and beef prices have been a bit more expensive. Sirloin steak is a delicious, lean, tender, and less-costly alternative. 

These Grilled Sirloin Steaks with Sweet and Sour Vegetables are an excellent example of that.

I thought that the sweet and spicy flavor of the Spicy Pineapple Head would pair well with sweet and sour stir fry. My prep for the steak was simple - I marinated it in ponzu sauce, then seasoned it with Spicy Pineapple Head and grilled it.

Chorizo Chili Burgers with Cilantro Avocado Slaw

I have been burning the candle at both ends lately and I wanted something easy but delicious last night. I had some ground chuck and came up with these tasty burgers. The chorizo chili sauce is just a spin on my favorite hot dog chili sauce. The slaw is cheating because I use a store-bought salad dressing for the base but it is so good, you'd never know it.

The spicy chorizo chili and creamy avocado slaw play well together.

I'm going to be a little vague with the measurements because I was just making this up as I went. Vague but accurate, if that's a thing.
