Creamy Pasta Salad with Southside Market & Barbeque Sausage Perfect Easy Recipe for Summer

I was sent some packages of Southside Market Original Beef Sausage to share this original recipe, all opinions are my own. I shared about Southside Market's Smoked Turkey Breast back in November as the perfect main dish at your holiday gatherings, but today I am sharing a summer recipe for your pool or lake side get-togethers. Southside Market has other flavors to choose from including Garlic Smoked Sausage, Jalapeno Cheddar Smoked Sausage, and Summer Sausage.

Southside Market original beef sausage is known by locals and old-timers as "Elgin Hot Sausage" or simply "Hot Guts", this is the sausage that put Southside on the map. All beef, coarsely ground in a natural pork casing, and seasoned with cracked black pepper. It is what we are known for and is our best seller. On any given Saturday, they sell around 1400 lbs. in their Elgin restaurant alone! All of their sausage is made fresh, in-house daily for a level of quality, taste, and enjoyment you can’t find anywhere else. Since 1882.
