  1. Cook the sausage breaking it up so there are no lumps, cook with the onions & garlic. When the meat is lightly browned drain the pan.
  2. Add the green peppers, saute 2 minutes.
  3. Add the zucchini, tomatoes, jalapeno, basil, chili, salt, lemon juice & tabasco, simmer 15 minutes. Meanwhile cook your pasta (for an easy method see recipe #30358).
  4. Serve over pasta.
  5. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Wow Bergy, this is worth way more than 5-stars. I, like you, used the hot Italian sausage. Combine that with the fresh zucchini, tomatoes and other seasonings made for one flavor-filled spaghetti sauce. I see no need to add to or alter anything. Family gave it enthusiastic thumbs up. Thanks :D

My family really enjoyed this sauce! Not a marinare sauce, but a wonderful combination of fresh veggies and Italian sausage all cooked together. Really different, quite delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
