We love Italian food at our house and one of my favorite dishes, especially during the summer, is Tagliolini with Vegetables and Sausage. Italian Sausage, zucchini, tomatoes, bell peppers, mushrooms and fresh Parmesan. It’s so good. In fact, I often refer to this as my Summer Pasta Dish.Serving Tagliolini with Vegetables and Sausage

Tagliolini is delicious for this recipe, but you can also substitute linguine or spaghetti, which is similar. In our house, tagliolini is reserved for very special occasions, such as anniversaries or birthdays! You may purchase Morelli Tagliolini Pasta. I highly recommend it.

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Ingredients for this Recipe

What I like most about this recipe is that it is so easy! And so very delicious. To begin, gather your ingredients and cook your sausage. Remove sausage from skin and brown in a large skillet. I like to use a mild Italian sausage for this recipe.

 

Prepare the Vegetables

While the sausage is cooking, prepare the vegetables. Chop the sweet onion, green bell pepper, zucchini, and squash.

Slice the mushrooms. Mince the garlic.

If using fresh herbs, chop the parsley and basil.

 

Make the Sauce

Add the Prepared Vegetables to the Browned Sausage

Once the sausage is fully browned, add in the chopped vegetables and garlic. Cook on medium low until tender, 10-12 minutes. Add 1-2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil, if needed.

Add Hand Crushed Tomatoes to the Dish

Add a can of whole tomatoes, that have been crushed by hand (or canned crushed tomatoes) and stir to combine. Pour the red wine and wine vinegar over the vegetables.

When cooking with wine, it is always recommended to use the same quality of wine that you enjoy drinking. In this instance, I am using Chateau Greysac, a French Bourgeois.

Fresh Herbs will Make This Dish Even Better!

Season with parsley and basil. Use fresh herbs if you have them, and dried if you don’t. Fresh herbs will make this dish even better!

Next, sprinkle in some red pepper flakes, and then finish off with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Continue to cook on low for another 10-12 minutes until the sauce has reduced and is slightly thickened.

 

Prepare the Pasta

While the sauce simmers, prepare the pasta, timing everything to be done at the same time. And yes, if you do not have tagliolini, feel free to use linguine or spaghetti in it’s place. Fresh pasta is pretty marvelous as well.

Add Cooked Pasta to the Sauce and Stir to Combine

Using a pasta scoop, place the pasta, cooked to al dente into the vegetable sauce and carefully stir to combine. You may use extra pasta water if the sauce needs more liquid.

Pasta water is a great way to thicken your sauce, as it is full of starch.

Serve this recipe with a crusty bread such as Tangy Sourdough, Rustic Sourdough Baguettes or Soft Breadsticks.

    We love recipes like this with savory vegetables over pasta (gluten-free in our case). I’m especially fascinated at the instruction to crush the canned tomatoes by hand. That must be why the sauce coating the pasta is not very red.
