Summer entertaining should be relaxed and easy going. It’s okay to have elaborate menus for some festivities, but sometimes you just want to keep it simple. Recently, Al Fresco (the all-natural chicken sausage people) asked me if they could send me some FREE coupons to try out their sausage for a dinner party. I thought it sounded fun so I gave them the thumbs up.
At the store, I chose their fresh Sweet Italian Sausage because I thought it would be great grilled and served with a platter of grilled veggies (orange and red peppers, zucchini, onions, mushrooms, asparagus drizzled with a little olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper). I was right…the grilled sausage and veggies were a party pleaser! Yum! Bruschetta with a tomato-basil topping rounds out the meal, and a Blueberry-Lemon Cornmeal Cake makes a delicious, summery finale.
Since there’s no artificial ingredients, MSG or funky preservatives in Al Fresco’s Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage,you can feel good about eating it and feeding it to your guests.
I found Al Fresco sausage at my local Fred Meyer store (in a few other flavors, too), but you can click here to see where to find it in your area. Check out their website for recipes and info on their company.
