Linguine and Zucchini

with Sweet Italian Sausage in a Tomato Sauce

We’re in peak zucchini season right now, when the green veg is at is juiciest and sweetest. What better way to celebrate than with a pasta dish? Italy is where the zucchini as we know it was first cultivated, after all, plus it gets its name from the Italian word for “squash.” Here, it’s tossed with sausage crumbles, a hearty tomato sauce, and strands of linguine for a dish that’s positively gourd-geous.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Wash and dry all produce. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Trim ends from zucchini, then quarter lengthwise. Thinly slice quarters crosswise into triangles. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Mince or grate garlic. Cut lemon into wedges. Remove sausage from casing; discard casing.

Cook Sausage

Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking meat up into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside.

Boil Pasta

Once water boils, add linguine to pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, 9-11 minutes. Scoop out and reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water, then drain. Return linguine to pot along with a splash of cooking water.

Cook Veggies

Add onion, zucchini, and another large drizzle of olive oil to pan used for sausage over medium-high heat. Cook, tossing, until softened, about 4-6 minutes. Toss in garlic, thyme, and chili flakes (to taste). Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.

Simmer Sauce

Add diced tomatoes and sausage to pan with veggies and stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let simmer until rest of meal is ready. TIP: Give the sauce a taste. If it seems sharp, add up to 1 tsp sugar.

Plate and Serve

Add sausage, veggies, and sauce to pot with linguine. Add a squeeze or two of lemon (to taste). Toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. (TIP: If sauce seems thick or stiff, stir in more pasta cooking water.) Divide mixture between plates and sprinkle with Parmesan. Cut any remaining lemon into wedges and serve on the side for squeezing over.
