Pasta Primavera With Italian Turkey Sausage

This is a recipe that I took with me up to British Columbia this summer when we visited my family.
We had had a wonderful day of tubing down the river and swimming and sitting on the beach.

When we got home we got busy and made this recipe for the gang. Everyone loved it. So I thought I'd share it with you.

Pasta Primavera With Italian Turkey Sausage

2 cups uncooked pasta
1 LB Italian Turkey Sausage
4 cloves garlic
1/2 onion chopped
2 small zucchini chopped
2 small yellow squash chopped
6 Roma tomatoes chopped
20 fresh basil leaves
2 tsp chicken boullion or 2 chicken broth cubes
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 Cup grated parmesan cheese

1) Bring lg pot of water to boil. Cook pasta El Dente. Drain.

2) Cook onions and galic in small amount of olive oil. Add sausage and cook till done. Drain (I just start cooking the meat and then throw the onions and garlic in)

3) Add squash, tomatoes, basil, pepper, boullion or cubes. Stir well 

Cook covered for about 15 minutes then remove lid. Cook uncovered until squash is tender but not over-cooked. (about 15 min. more)
Remove from heat and add parmesan cheese.

Use your own judgment on when your squash is done as it may take more or less time. We added more squash to this recipe and we doubled it for our crowd. It's an easy one to play with and add things to and it's really good warmed up the next day. If there's any leftovers that is!

It's a great way to use up your squash and tomatoes and basil if you have a garden!

Lots of laughs

Nearly ready for the cheese

Smells SO good


This is Growers Apple Cider and I can only get it when we go up to BC.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. It's SO easy and fast and certainly helps you keep up with your garden veggies.

Have a wonderful day!
