    mamabear22's Note:

    This is a super-easy, super-quick casserole dish that I came up with last week. I used Italian turkey sausage that my husband had grilled while we were barbecuing the day before. I also used wheat rotini pasta, but I think any kind of pasta would work. The rest of the quantities are just estimates ... you could use more or less depending on your tastes. I used whole cumin, fennel, thyme, and rosemary and lightly ground them with a pestle, but you could also use pre-ground. My husband, who is not usually a casserole lover, has been raving about this ever since, and my daughter, who usually hates zucchini, cleaned her plate without even a mention of it.

      Prepare pasta as directed, rinse with cold water, and set aside.

      As pasta is cooking, cook Italian sausage as desired. (I like to pre-cook sausages, as they are easier to cut once they are already cooked.).

      In a large pan, saute onion, peppers, zucchini, and garlic in olive oil until opaque.

      Made this recipe pretty much as written (although I did cut back on the cumin & also used lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P) & then took half of it over to a neighbor couple that I cook for on a regular basis (especially during PAC), & we are all of the same opinion ~ THIS RECIPE DEFINITELY DESERVES ALL THE STARS IT CAN GET ~ It's GREAT! Lots of different seasonings, but they all came together very well! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees at the tail end of the current PAC]
