Method

1. Thread a piece of sausage, haloumi, artichoke, onion and eggplant on to each skewer. Spray skewers with cooking oil.

2. Preheat a barbecue to moderate heat. Cook skewers for 5-7 minutes or until browned, turning every few minutes.

3. To make pesto, blend basil, garlic, Parmesan and pine nuts in a food processor until finely chopped. Combine oil and lemon juice in a small bowl and while processor is going, gradually add to the basil mixture until pesto is almost smooth.

4. Serve antipasto skewers with pesto drizzled over the top.

Tip: Soak skewers in cold water 15 minutes before use to prevent them from burning when cooking.
