Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage July 16, 2008

Filed under: Entrees,Pasta — lindsayrose @ 12:16 am

I made this for dinner tonight and loved it.  I think I’ve mentioned before that I could eat pasta pretty much every night.  I love it.  Any dish that is remotely Italian or includes pasta is always high on my list of cravings.  We had some Italian turkey sausage and needed to find a recipe, so I went to my favorite site and searched.  This is what I found.


All of the fresh veggies in here make it a great summer meal!  I was afraid that all of the fresh stuff was going to make for a high grocery bill, but it wasn’t bad at all.  I made a few changes while cooking.  First, I added mushrooms to the veggies.  I can’t have a pasta primavera without mushrooms!  Also, instead of adding 1/4 c of olive oil after taking the sausage out, I added about 1/4 c of white wine to deglaze the pan and then about 1/8 c of olive oil.  Also, at the end of cooking the veggies, I added about 1/8 c of wine and 1/8 c of olive oil.  It gave it a good wine flavor and cut back on the oil at the same time.  Ross had bought some sort of tomato basil pasta nests and we used that instead of bowties.


We both liked it and plan to make it again!
