Make It

Sauce:

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the preserves, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and chili sauce. Stir in 2 tablespoons water. Set aside.

2. Heat gas grill to medium-high or prepare a charcoal grill with medium-hot coals. Lightly coat grill rack with oil or nonstick cooking spray.

Vegetables and Sausage:

3. In a large bowl, toss the vegetables with the vegetable oil. Grill in batches for about 5 minutes per side, brushing the sauce over the vegetables every few minutes. Brush the sausage with the sauce and grill for about 3 minutes per side, until nicely browned. Remove to a cutting board and slice into chunks on the bias.

4. Toss the pasta with the remaining sauce and serve alongside vegetables and sausage.
