4 (2-ounce) chicken sausages
12 plum tomatoes, cut in half crosswise
1 onion, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rings
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
3 bunches spinach, thick stems removed (about 10 cups)

1. Prepare grill.

2. Prick sausages in several places with a fork. Grill, turning occasionally, 8 minutes or until hot throughout.
