Let preseasoned sausage do the work. Sweet or hot Italian links may be a summertime grilling staple, but they also deserve kudos for how easily they transform into flavorful patties. Since the meat is already seasoned, all you have to do is remove the casings, form the pork into burgers, brush with oil and grill over moderate heat until browned and crusty, about 5 minutes per side. While the burgers cook, sauté a bag of baby spinach with garlic in olive oil for a fresh-tasting topping. Toasted ciabatta rolls will soak up the juices.
