Chef Chuck's Pasta with Sausage and Zucchini


Pasta con Salsiccia e Zucchine 


This pasta recipe was made with Cencioni pasta, hot spicy Italian sausage, zucchini and cherry tomatoes.  I made parmigiano cheese frico to give this dish a bit of a crunch. 
The flavors combined together were delicious.

Pasta with Sausage and Zucchini

1/2 pound pasta
3 hot sausages, broken up
4 tablespoons butter
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 cup vegetable broth
1 small zucchini, diced small
1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 cup parmigiano cheese
salt and pepper

In a 8 inch non stick frying pan grate parmigiano cheese and cook on low till it forms and sets, remove with a spatula and set aside.  In a large frying pan heat butter add garlic and remove sausage from casings break sausage up add broth and cook on high for a few minutes.  Remove garlic and discard.  At this time start cooking your pasta in boiling salted water till al dente.  Add to the sausage pan the zucchini, tomatoes, 1tablespoon parsley, salt and pepper.  Cook on low when pasta is finished add to the sausage mix and serve with remaining parsley, and broken up frico ( parmigiano crisp).
