Italian Sausage Wraps

You all know I can cook ANYTHING.  I can cook the fancy foods with flair, but I can also cook the simple foods that are fun.  In the summer, I tend to cook more fun, simple foods than fancy foods.  I want to enjoy the summer too.  Usually, I am in the pool, swimming my arms off, but not this year (all the pools are STILL closed), so I just don’t have the time or the desire to be in the kitchen all day when I would rather be outside and in the water.

We had some Italian sausages down so I thought I would dress them up a bit, and make them a little more fun.  This recipe could not be any easier to make and only requires a few simple, everyday ingredients.

As you know, I am the wine aficionado.  The Mountain Dew is all Larry’s.   I guess I didn’t do such a good job of getting it out of the picture this time.  🙂  We fried up some French fries and I made a cool green bean and tomato salad to go with our Italian sausage wraps with some marinara sauce on the side for a perfect, easy-peasy summer meal.

You can use any kind of sausage links and cheese you like, I just happened to have hot Italian sausage links down.  Larry likes cheddar and I prefer Mozzarella.

Italian sausage links, or your choice of sausage links

cheese of your choice

marinara sauce

 

Cook your sausages first and let them cool.  Separate the crescent rolls and flatten them out with your fingers on a lightly floured surface.  Place the cooked sausage onto the wide end of the crescent and roll it up, making sure to cover as much of the sausage link as possible.

Preheat the oven to 350* F of 180* C.

When the sausages are all rolled up, add the cheese on top.  Lightly press the cheese into the dough.  Place them on a baking pan sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown.
