Sweet Italian Sausage with Zucchini and Tomatoes
We Love Sausage
During the summer at the Farmers Markets you will find delicious Zucchini and Tomatoes. Pair these delicious ingredients with some Circle B Ranch Sweet Italian Sausage.
6 links sweet Italian sausage*
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil*
4 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 tablespoons fresh oregano, finely chopped (or 1 tablespoon dried oregano)
1 pound zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3/4 pound mixed red and yellow cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
Salt and pepper
Prepare sausages according to package directions, either in a sauté pan or on the grill. While they are cooking, heat olive oil in a large heavy sauté pan over medium high heat. Add garlic and oregano, stir for a few seconds, then add zucchini and cook 3 to 5 minutes.
When sausages are cooked, cut into large bite-sized pieces and add to pan along with tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper. Continue to sauté until tomatoes are just softened, about 1 minute more.
Transfer to a large platter and serve.
