One of my favorite summer meals is a summer squash, Italian sausage one pan meal. I served it over brown rice, but think that Quinoa would be good as well. or even whole grain pasta. I made a huge pan of this tonight so that there could be leftovers for lunches.
Italian Sausage Summer Squash Meal
5 links Italian Sausage (I always use Hot Italian Sausage)
2 large onions, diced
4-5 cloves garlic, chopped
3 medium zucchini, diced
3 medium yellow squash, diced
2 (14oz)cans diced tomatoes (fresh would be good, but mine are not ready yet)
basil (to taste)
salt (to taste)
Brown the Italian Sausage links. Take them out of the pan and slice into 1/4 inch or so slices. Put slices back in the pan to finish browning and cook through. Take Sausage out of the pan and put aside. Drain grease. Put onions and garlic in the same pan and cook until onions are soft. Add Sausage, zucchini, yellow squash, and diced tomatoes. Season, to taste, with basil and salt. Cook for about 20 minutes until squash is soft. Serve over rice, Quinoa, or noodles.
