Zucchini and Sausage in Marinara
 
Italian Sausage, Zucchini and Basil Marinara

INGREDIENTS: Serves: 4

1 lb crumbled SB-friendly Italian sausage (hot or mild)
2 small onions, chopped
2-3 Tbs olive oil
4 cups zucchini, chopped and deseeded
2 cloves garlic, minced

1 28 oz can tomato sauce/NS marinara
1/3 c. chopped fresh basil

PROCEDURE:
1. Saute the sausage until cooked, using olive oil as needed.
2. Remove the sausage from the pan and sauté the onions until soft.
3. Add the zucchini and cook 3-5 minutes until soft.
4. Add the marinara and simmer for 5 minutes, then add the sausage back to the pan, adding the basil.

I adapted this from a recipe I saw on TV. That chef served it over garlic toast but I just ate it plain. You could also use any whole wheat pasta or even shirataki noodles.
I also added mushrooms and red peppers with the zucchini. Delicious!!

This is an old family favorite that I grew up with, and I make this dish often, using crumbled Tofurky Italian Sausage in the place of regular sausage. It's amazing how good this recipe is, and versatile, too. I like to add diced tomatoes and red hot pepper flakes to mine! :drool:
