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.

What a tasty dish! I used spicy turkey sausage and added the zucchini pulp in with the sausage and followed the rest of the instructions...definately a keeper. I really enjoyed the pine nuts and red pepper flakes in the mixture. Going into my Favorites of 2012. Thank you for posting. Made for Mays Tag Game ~ El Calabacin ~ Zucchini.
