I was recently chosen to participate in Marx Food’s Blogger Recipe Challenge: Game Sausage Edition. I was sent four links of one of the sausages in their game sausage sampler. The type I was to receive was a mystery until the FedEx man delivered me my cute little, ice-packed, cooler-type package. We were waiting with bated breath because if foie gras was on the menu, I might have had a hard time getting FishPapa to play this game with me.

Italian sausage is a regular staple at our house. I often use it in making Queso Fundido. However, since that is a recipe that I adapted from a magazine, I didn’t think it was fair to use it for the contest. Our second application for Italian links is to serve them with pasta.

Kids and adults alike love pasta, so how can you lose? No mom wants to be met with wrinkled noses when she brings dinner to the table, does she? And she doesn’t want to slave all day, either.

So, I concocted a super easy, but delicious recipe – one that utilizes budget pantry items, the crockpot, and the grill. Mom does a little work, Mom saves a little money, and the appliances and hubs finish the job. Can I get your vote on that?
