  • 3 ears corn, husks and silks removed

Italian-Style Pasta Salad Sauce

Steps (4)

  • Step 1
    Heat a grill to medium-high.
  • Step 2
    While the grill heats, cook the pasta according to the package’s directions. Drain, rinse under cold water until cool, and drain again. Reserve in a large bowl.
  • Step 3
    Toss the asparagus, corn, and onion with the oil and a generous pinch of salt and pepper to evenly coat. Grill along with the sausage links, turning to evenly brown, until crisp-tender and lightly charred, about 6 minutes for the asparagus, 10 minutes for the corn, and 8 minutes for the onion. Grill the sausage, turning occasionally, until grill marks appear and heated through, and 10 minutes. Transfer everything to a cutting board.
  • Step 4
    Mix all of the Pasta Sauce ingredients until smooth. When cool enough to handle, cut the asparagus into 1-inch pieces, cut the kernels off the corn cobs, thinly slice the onion, and cut the sausages into thin half-moons. Add to the pasta, along with the sauce, and toss until evenly coated.
