Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Submitted by: [email protected] on May 24, 2011

This is a simple and easy dish to prepare. I use larger squash so the meal goes further. In winter, I use one can diced tomatoes and a large teaspoon of dried basil (not ground–use less if ground). For the pasta, I like corkscrew or bows.
