1 pound penne pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/4 pound hot Italian sausage
1/2 medium onion
2 cloves garlic
3 canned whole roasted red peppers
1 small zucchini
1/2 yellow squash
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Parmesan cheese


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt water heavily until it tastes like the ocean. Add pasta to boiling water and cook according to package directions.

Meanwhile, slice sausages into 1 inch pieces. Heat a large saute pan with olive oil over medium high heat. Add sausage pieces and saute for a few minutes until fat begins to render. Slice onion thinly into 1/4-inch pieces and add to sausage.

Mince garlic. Slice roasted peppers into 1/4-inch thick pieces. Slice zucchini and squash in half lengthwise then crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices.

Add garlic to onions once onions begin to soften. Saute for two minutes then add peppers, zucchini and squash. Saute for about 3 minutes until peppers are heated through and zucchini and squash are cooked. Drain pasta once cooked and add to pan with cooked vegetables and peppers.

Serve immediately with Parmesan cheese.
