Ingredients

8 ounces Italian style poultry sausage

8 large basil leaves

12 pitted calamata olives, halved

24 grape tomatoes

24 (6-inch) wooden skewers

Directions

  1. Cook the sausage according to the directions on the package and cut it into 1-inch rounds. Cut the basil leaves lengthwise into thirds. 
  2. Put an olive half about 1/3 of the way down onto a skewer. Then add 1 strip of basil, folding so it fits nicely on the skewer. Follow with 1 grape tomato and a round of sausage. Position everything on the end of the skewer so the skewer can stand up on its sausage end.
