While the grits are cooking prepare the sausage and shrimp. When the grits are done stir in the asiago cheese. Keep them warm and continue to stir until ready to serve.

Cook coin sliced sausage in a 12 skillet over medium heat for about 10-12 minutes until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a bowl and reserve.
Add olive oil to the hot skillet and cook the shrimp, turning until cooked through about 3-4 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, red pepper, corn, green onions, garlic, seasoning and water and cook another 3-4 minutes. Add the cooked sausage and heat through.
Spoon grits into individual bowls and top with sausage and shrimp mixture.
