Italian Sausage with Grilled Vegetables Pasta Toss

Well let me tell you this is TWO meals in ONE!! This is what I like to call as a double duty meal!
It is awesome hot right off the grill. But even better it is one totally mind blowing pasta salad! Perfect for family gatherings or like us a large family!
Please note it makes A LOT! So don't be afraid to cut back on the amount of pasta if you do not want to be eating it for a week. Don't say I didn't warn you :)
Remember I love getting your feed back on how it went for you!
What you need:

1yellow zucchini, cut length wise then cut into 1/2 inch think slices
2 Green peppers, cut into 1/2 inch wide strips
2/3 cup red onion wedges
5 plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped
6 tbsp. Kraft Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tuscan Italian dressing, Divided
1 Lb. Italian sausage links (About 4-6 sausages)
3 cups Rigatoni pasta, Uncooked
1 cup of your favorite shredded cheese
2 Ft. tin foil
Put It Together:
Cut up vegitables
Lay Foil out on cutting surface
Spread out cut vegetables on to foil
Add 1/4 cup of dressing
Make a foil pack with foil around vegetables to be placed on grill.
O a Med. high grill place vegetable pack and sausages. Good for about 15-20 min turning sausages frequently.
Meanwhile start cooking pasta as directed, omitting salt
Once Sausages are cooked and removed from grill on your cutting surface slice the sausages lengthwise ten into bite size pieces
Drain cooked pasta and place in a large bowl
Add grilled vegetables including juices.
Add Sausage
Add remaining dressing
Give a good toss
Top with cheese.
