    This is a dish inspired after watching an episode of Martha Stewart. I changed things a little and added other ingredients to make it my own.

      This was a great base recipe! I changed it up a bit too, using what I had on hand and it turned out fantastic! I used shell shaped pasta and 1 lb of hot bulk sausage. I put the sausage, 1 summer squash, 1 onion and 4 cloves garlic along with the seasoning in a pan and sauteed until the sausage was cooked. I drained off the fat and added back in the juice using one of those nifty fat separator cups. I added the pasta, gave it a stir and it was loved by all :) Thanks for posting...I'll be using your recipe as a base for using up lots of squash and zucchini!
