  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 coves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 freshly chopped basil (or substitute 1 1/2 tablespoons dry basil)
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 6 links (about 1 lb.) sweet or hot Italian turkey sausage, cut into

  • 6 ozs. zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 6 ozs. yellow squash, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces


Combine oil, lemon juice garlic, basil, lemon peel, salt and pepper in medium bowl. Add sausage to marinade, stirring to coat; refrigerate several hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
Prepare charcoal for grilling. Alternately thread skewers with vegetables and sausage on four 10-inch metal skewers. Brush all sides with marinade.
