I recently received the latest Williams-Sonoma catalog in the mail and I love to peruse it each month to see what new kitchen gadgets they have; as well as look to find some new recipe inspiration. This time I found a recipe for Chick Peas with Lemon, Oregano and Olives that looked wonderful. So I decided to give it a little twist.

The day before we had grilled some sausage and had two links left over. I sliced them up, added in some chick peas, Kalamata olives, lemon and seasonings and turned it into a satisfying stand-alone meal. To me, leftovers always taste better when you can repurpose them into something else!

    What I love about your post is the presence of the Nutrition Facts! I think I better try this dish for my partner since he really loves sausages. Well, I’m also fond of eating sausages and I know that this dish can be one that we can enjoy together. I just hope that I can make this as tasty as possible. 😀
