Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain.
  2. Brown the sausage, stirring to crumble, in a skillet over medium heat. Remove sausage using a slotted spoon, leaving drippings in the pan. Cook and stir the onion and garlic in the sausage drippings until the onions are softened. Return the sausage to the pan. Stir in the red bell pepper, zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Cook another 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, thyme, basil, and oregano; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  3. Combine the drained pasta with the sausage mixture in a large bowl. Top with Parmesan cheese to serve.

MMMMMMM!!!!!!! So good. I only made a few changes, based on reviews, and based on what I had on hand. Will DEFINITELY make this again! I used three sweet sausages and two hot sausages, cut off the casings and browned it all together. I had fresh basil, so I chopped it up and used about 1/8cup. I used more garlic than it calls for, but I ALWAYS do - we LOVE garlic! Also, I intended to buy zucchini, but upon closer inspection, it was an italian squash...not the same thing, but it was still tasty. I will buy a zucchini next time though. I chopped all of the veggies up very small, hoping my daughter would eat them (no dice!). My husband commented on how small they were, and that he preferred them that way - I do, too...you get more flavors in one bite if they're smaller. I used a 15oz can of tomato sauce because another reviewer said it needed more sauce. SUPER yummy! Thanks so much!! :)

My husband and I liked this sauce, but I did make some adjustments, instead of crumbling the sausage I cooked it first then cut it into pieces. Also I needed more sauce, so I added a bit from a jar. All in all a good recipe.

This dish was amazing - and even better the next day! I followed one reviewer's advice and diced the veggies up really small so each bite was full of veggies. It really made it wonderful!! I was planning to use two cans of diced tomatoes (b/c so many people said it needed more sauce) but realized I only had one so I improvised and threw in 3/4 of a can of creamy tomato soup (the kind you microwave and drink) and it came out wonderful!! I froze some for a future dinner and can only imagine how flavorful it will be when I eat it!! I used Jimmy Dean's sage flavored sausage and added some crushed red pepper to give it a kick. Will probably use spicy sausage next time. Thank you Heather for a terrific & easy to make recipe!!
