  • 1 lb. italian sausage
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 med. chopped onion
  • 1 can tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 beef boulion cube
  • 1 med zucchini, cubed
  • 1 med yellow squash, cubed
  • 6-12 oz tri-color rotini (for color, it is fall after all)

Method

  • 1) Chop the onion, and cube the zucchini and squash. Finely chop most of the onion to add flavor to the sauce, but leave a few large chunks of it to add some texture to the sauce.
  • 2) Begin to brown the sausage.

  • 5) Stir in the tomatoes with the juice. Sometimes a bit more tomato sauce is needed, so if neccesary, add 1/4-1/2 a can of tomato sauce to the sauce. I had to add about 1/4 of a can to this. Add the garlic, oregano and boulion.
