Sausage Vegetable Pasta

This is the recipe for the delicious pasta dish that Tiffany made at the beach in July. Even the kids really liked it! (I don't think they realized there are REAL VEGETABLES in it.)

Sausage Vegetable Pasta

1 small zucchini, sliced
1 small yellow squash, slices
2 plum tomatoes, sliced
1 Tbsp fresh basil, coarsely chopped
8 oz mild Italian sausage (2 links), sliced
8 oz rigatoni pasta
1 c fresh diced onions
2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
1 tsp vegetable seasoning blend
1.5 c specialty pasta sauce
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

  • Bring water to a boil for pasta.
  • Slice zucchini and squash; cut tomatoes into1-inch pieces. Chop basil.
  • Cut sausage into small, bite-size pieces (wash hands).
  • Cook and drain pasta following package instructions.
  • Combine zucchini, squash, onions, 1 Tbsp oil and seasoning; set aside.
  • Preheat large saute pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Place remaining 1 Tbsp oil in pan, then add sausage; cook and stir 4-5 minutes or until no pink remains. Remove sausage from pan.
  • Reduce heat to low; stir in tomatoes, pasta, sausage and pasta sauce, then cover. Simmer 1-2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Top with basil and cheese; serve.
