Default Zucchini and Sausage in Marinara

Italian Sausage, Zucchini and Basil Marinara


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

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!
