Ingredients
Nonstick cooking spray
5 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
1 eggplant (1 1/2 pounds), cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 large red onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices
6 hot or sweet Italian sausages

Directions
1. Prepare charcoal grill with medium-hot coals or heat gas grill to medium-high; coat rack with nonstick cooking spray. For dressing, whisk together 4 tablespoons of the oil, the vinegar, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

2. Brush tomatoes, eggplant, and onion with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Pierce sausages several times with the point of a small knife. Grill vegetables and sausages, turning often, 13 to 15 minutes, or until sausages are no longer pink and vegetables are crisp-tender.

3. Remove vegetables from grill and chop into bite-size pieces; cut sausages into coins, then cut each coin in half. Add sausage and vegetables to pasta. Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat
