Grilled Veggies and Turkey Sausage!

Summer is officially here and with it our some good looking veggies at the supermarket, so why not throw them on the grill? Grilling veggies is a great way to get to enjoy your veggies as it brings out some wonderful flavor. I chose to cook some carrots, zucchini, and yellow squash. The zucchini and squash turned out fantastic, but the carrots needed to cook a little longer to soften up. I plan on trying carrots again as the few pieces that were cooked to crisp tender were delicious.
1lb of turkey sausage
2 large zucchini
2 large summer squash
1 bag of carrot chips
Veggie Wok or a Grill sheet to keep veggies from falling through the grate

1. Set up grill for direct grilling over a hot fire.
2. Slice the zucchini and squash into about 1/2" slices. Spray the carrots, squash, and carrots with Pam or lightly coat with olive oil
3. Cook the squash and zucchini approximately 5 minutes per side depending on the heat of you fire, you want nice grill marks. The carrots will take longer and may need a lower heat to prevent burning. (I wish I had better directions for this, but it's the first time I've roasted carrots this way so be on the look out for a revisit on cooking carrots on the grill.)
4. Slice the sausage as you like and cook till warm.

I like to serve this up on a big platter and let every one dig in.
