This week for Thirty Minute Thursdays, cooking our way through Giuliano Hazan's Thirty Minute Pasta book with Glennis, and whoever else wants to join us, I made Fusilli alla Salsiccia e Zucchine (Fusilli with Sausage and Zucchini), on page 150. Another delicious meal in the thirty minute time frame, I am loving this deal.
Mark likes sausage and every once in awhile I try to find something that uses sausage as an ingredient, so that it goes further and you don't have to feel quite so guilty having a little of it instead of a huge hunk of it. This recipe fit the search and Mark and Matt were delighted with it.
Ingredient list: onions, butter, Italian sausage (the recipe suggested pork sausage, but also said one could choose), zucchini, salt, tomatoes, fusilli, and freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Definitely a repeat, the guys ate a great amount of it and there was even some left for Mark to take in his lunch the next day and Matt to have for breakfast (yes, I said breakfast, swimmers eat all sorts of things at odd times of the day as they are always hungry)!
If you like the looks and sounds of it, buy the book as I am a believer in encouraging people to support the authors who put together these fabulous books by buying a copy, so you won't find the recipes posted from this book here. (Buy it, the recipes are easy, the ingredients are easy to locate, it's not pricey, and there are photos of almost all the recipes.)
