Pasta // Quick Weeknite Meal {FFAY #4}

quick and easy pasta, Foodie For A Year

This is hands down one of my favorite quick dinners. I could seriously eat this once a week. Sadly, there is usually no leftovers after I make this. I think what I like best about this pasta dish is the precooked Italian sausage (we LOVE this brand in mild, fingers crossed you can find it!!!); it's ready to eat just heat it up and you've saved yourself fry time and oil burns- please tell me I'm not the only one who gets burned cooking sausage?!

  1. I love using seasonal veggies when cooking. This recipe is awesome! :)

  2. Ooh I will love this recipe! Now to find that sausage!!!

  3. Yay for garden veggies friend. I have THE WORST luck with zucchini. The squash bugs get out of hand so quick and then my organic garden goes to pot when I have to use pesticides. I really don't want to do that so I just don't grow them.

  4. I have been looking for something different to use sausage with! This is perfect. Thank you for sharing!!

  5. So yum! My kiddies love sausage & so does the hubs! Pinning for later!

  6. This looks so easy and right up my alley when it comes to my deep love of sausage (yup... I just put that in writing on the internet!).

  7. YUMMM! You had me at zucchini and tomatoes!!! Thanks for the great meal idea!

  8. I'm a fan of anything with sausage! Probably why we like the recipe I shared in the last foodie so much. i bet this would be tasty, but nobody would eat the pasta lol.

  9. Never heard of that sausage but it looks like they sell it at Whole Foods, will have to check it out next time I am there. This looks delicious with all of the yummy summer veggies!

  10. Give me all the zucchini and tomatoes!!
    This looks so light and delicious. I have to give it a try!

  11. YUM!!! I love all of these things -- tomatoes, zucchini, sausage, pasta. You hit them all! I'm going to have to try this!
