     Grilled sausages lend a nice flavor to Pasta Salads but you can fry them in a skillet if you prefer.  This salad can be served warm, room temperature or chilled.

Pasta Salad with Sausage and Chickpeas

    Chickpeas and Feta add a Mediterranean touch to this salad.  You could as easily use grilled chicken breasts, or leave the meat out altogether for a vegetarian version.
