Pasta Primavera with spicy turkey sausage.

This is such a wonderfully versatile recipe.  After being away for a long weekend, I didn’t have a chance to run to the grocery store but did make my weekly pilgrimage to the farmer’s market.  I purchased everything for dinner there and it was wonderful.  My kids love turkey sausage and it is a great way to pack a meal with some colorful vegetables.

Bring a large stock pot or Dutch oven filled with water to a boil.  Add some salt to season the water.

I used 1.36 lbs of spicy turkey sausage and grilled it till cooked and then sliced it and placed it in a sauté pan.

While that was cooking, I chopped up all of the veggies that I had purchased.  1 bunch of  asparagus chopped in half, 1/2 c of sugar snap peas, 1/4 of an onion, 2 red bell peppers and one zucchini, sliced.  I added them to the pan with the sausage and covered to steam.  This took about 7 minutes.  While this is cooking, boil your pasta according to package directions.

Once everything is cooked, toss together and I sprinkle with some spicy red pepper flakes.  Drizzle each plate with a tiny bit of olive oil and serve.  Bon Appetit!
