Sausage and pasta salad

Monday night dinner is taken care of with this easy, budget-friendly salad the whole family will find satisfying.

Ingredients (serves 4)
* 375g tortiglioni or large spiral pasta
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 500g pork sausages
* 2 zucchini, sliced lengthways
* 250g yellow or red teardrop tomatoes
* 125g rocket
* 300g bocconcini cheese, sliced
* 1/4 cup Italian salad dressing

1. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, following packet directions, until tender. Drain. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in 1 tablespoon oil. Set aside to cool (see tip).
2. Preheat barbecue grill and plate on medium heat. Grill sausages, turning, for 15 minutes or until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside to cool slightly. Grill zucchini, turning, for 6 minutes or until chargrilled. Transfer to a plate. Toss tomatoes in remaining oil. Barbecue on plate for 1 minute.
3. Thickly slice sausages. Add sausages, zucchini, tomatoes, rocket and bocconcini to pasta. Pour over dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine and serve immediately.

Notes & tips
* Tip: Pasta must be cooled before you add bocconcini, otherwise cheese will clump together.
