Andouille Sausage Recipes?

i made this pasta the other day, and it was the best thing i've made in awhile...
andouille sausage, sauteed in garlic with a white wine, pesto sauce with tomatoes and arugula over pasta. (it also calls for cannelini beans and goat cheese, which i omitted.)

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

i'm a bit of a grilled cheese freak... here are some of the ways i get down:

1) the staple: cheddar, muenster, avocado, tomato on milton's whole grain bread.
2) bizarrely beautiful: brie, chipotle en adobo, sliced papaya, basil on sourdough.
3) most recent concoction: valbreso feta, sliced plum, basil, balsamic vinegar on crusty olive bread.

i pretty much always eat my grilled cheese with a side salad of fresh herbs and avocado. and i always grill it on the stove in a pan or on a griddle, usually with a pot of water on top to weigh it down. i'd never really even considered another way... baking sounds great, but when i want my grilled cheese, i want it instantly. that said, i'm off to make a sandwich (not sure what, but something with goat brie, for sure!).
