This is a wonderful way to make zucchini. I used fresh sausage from the Farmers Market and zucchini from my garden. I did mix in the zucchini with my sausage, why waste it.

This recipe is great! I've made with with regular Italian sausage and hot Italian sausage (when we want a little bit more "zip"). Love the fresh basil and tomatoes and the pine nuts add that little touch of specialness. I would not change a thing in this recipe.
