A Recipe I made up!

So this is not a cooking blog at all, but I made up a recipe the other night that I thought turned out so great and I wanted to share it!

I don't even know what it's called (it probably exists already), but I've been calling it an Italian Sausage Pasta Dinner.

Here's what I did:

Italian Sausage Pasta Dinner

1 Package of Beer Bratwurst Sausages
1 Zucchini Squash (chopped into 1/4ths)
1 Green Pepper (chopped small)
1 Onion (diced)
Green Onions
Crushed Tomatoes (or 1 or 2 tomatoes chopped up)
White Wine
Olive Oil
Italian Spices (oregano, parsley, etc.)
Light Italian Salad Dressing
Pasta (I happened to use Radiatore)


Begin heating up water for the pasta.

Slice Bratwursts into bite sized pieces and begin to sauté

In a separate pan add onion, pepper, and green onions with some olive oil and begin to sauté.

Once onions and peppers are soft, add zucchini and spices (stir) and cover pan with a lid.

When the zucchini is almost done, add crushed tomatoes, white wine, and Italian dressing and stir until wine cooks off.

Serve over pasta.

It was really quick and easy, and I made it up as I went, but it was so good that I decided to write it down! Special thanks go to certain family members who are inspirations in the kitchen. ;-)


  1. so RC and i are supposed to be in charge of dinner one night this week...i now know what we're going to cook.

  2. Groovy!! Keep experimenting...sometimes those are the best ones to file away for future use!

  3. Hi Rachel. I will prompt Auntie Sue to try this one. Sounds delish !!
