Looking for a side dish that features fresh summer vegetables, but still delivers a nice kick? This dish features simple, clean vegetables and spicy sausage- a hit in my book! My friends Kristen and Chad have made this recipe a few times, and we enjoyed it this weekend along side baby back ribs and homemade macaroni and cheese. This maque choux does not disappoint!
