Zucchini and Sausage Milano

Total Time

Always looking for new zucchini ideas and my kids like Italian sweet (mild) sausages. I add 1 box of cooked penne and split the portions into 2 aluminum containers and froze them. I will defrost it and reheat it in the oven. When it is warmed through, add cheese on top then until melted. This recipe as described makes 2 "dinners" for about 5. You can serve it all at once for about 10.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry the sausages in a large skillet until lightly browned. Remove the sausages and set aside, leaving about 2 tablespoons of the grease in the pan.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the pasta; drain; set aside.
  3. Fry the zucchini and onion in the pan grease until slightly tender. Add remaining ingredients, except the cheese. Cook over low heat for 20 minutes, covered, stirring a bit.
  4. Add the pasta to the sauce and vegetables and blend.
  5. Place the mixture in a large baking dish and put in the sausages; or divide the mixture into 2 baking dishes for 2 separate dinners with half the amount of sausages in each.
  6. If you want to freeze for future use, do so now; add the cheese when you reheat.
  7. If making to eat now, add the cheese to the top and bake in 350 degree F. oven until cheese melts.
