One Pot Sausage and Zucchini Pasta

If you’re looking to change up your weeknight pasta game this is the recipe for you – with a handful of simple ingredients and 20 minutes time you will have a flavorful and healthy pasta dinner ready for your family!

We have pasta about once a week in our home – and although I do love a simple butter and Parmesan cheese sauce, I go crazy for a red sauce. Normally a “good” red sauce cooks for hours over low heat and develops it’s flavors, but who has time for that during the week?

Our recipe combines zucchini, browned Italian sausage and a few classic herbs to create a sauce that tastes like Gramma used to make – and it record time too! See below for your shopping list of ingredients.
