SALSICCIA STIR-TOGETHER

Ingredients:
1 bl loose salsiccia, crumbled
medium zucchini, coursly chopped
2 large mushrooms, coursly chopped
1 medium onion, quartered, then sliced in 1/2 inch slices
1 large ripe tomato, coursly chopped
1/3 lb angel hair pasta, broken into 4 inch pieces
Generous handful of shredded cheese of choice

Directions:

Pull apart salsiccia in a large iron skillet. Using a fork, make pieces smaller and even in size as possible while browning over fairly high heat. Stir constantly until it is well browned and has given off its fats and juices.
Bring pot of water to a boil, add salt and a dash of olive oil. Then add broken pasta and cook until it is al dente. Drain thoroughly in colander, rinsing in hot water to remove starch before returning to pot; keep warm.
Add onion sliced quarters and separate layers, stirring into the meat until all of it softens slightly. Then add zucchini and mushroom pieces, continuing to stir until they begin to soften. Make certain all is blended and absorbing pan juices. Then add chopped tomatoes and gently stir in, being careful not to overcook them.
Divide pasta between two plates and spoon meat/veggie mixture over each plate.
Finish with shredded cheese of choice: Romano, Parmesan or sharp cheddar.

This dish is ideal when you have the Italian sausage and want to throw something with veggies in it together quickly. I happened to have onion, zucchini, mushroom and tomato on hand, so that's what I used. Add any combination of veggies you prefer.
