Pasta Celebration

Loved this pasta dish from the latest Sunset magazine - simple and easy, as it promised. While the linguine cooked, I browned Italian sausage dollops in a little olive oil, removed the sausage and added chopped onions, minced garlic and zucchini slices to the pan over medium high heat, tossing until the zucchini started to brown lightly, then dumped the sausage back in for a final heating with some coarsely chopped fresh tomatoes.

When the pasta was ready, it was drained and then added to the same pan for a toss around before serving in my favorite pasta bowls. I took the picture before covering all that color in a blizzard of Parmesan cheese. Delicious and I think the whole thing took about 10 minutes from start to table once the pasta water was boiling.

So, why is that worth writing about?

The tomatoes all came from Juliet and Paul. Our own first tomatoes of the season, a true cause for celebration.

Nothing quite as good as your very own tomatoes, bliss from the vine.
