Italian Sausage and Garden Veggies

This is what I made tonight. We loved it enough to have 2 bowls and then be uncomfortably full. I hate it when I do that. The dishes were not even done and I had to sit to write the recipe down so that I could do it again. My garden is doing pretty well and I had lots of herbs and veggies that I needed to use up. Then I added the olives because Ron thinks everything is better with olives. Anyway, it was really good.

Italian Sausage and Garden Veggies

6 Italian sausages cut into pieces
1-2 T olive oil
1 large onion coarsely chopped
5 cloves garlic minced
10-12 small chopped fresh tomatoes or 1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 carrot sliced
1 green pepper coarsely chopped
1 zucchini sliced and halved
1 yellow squash sliced and halved
1 cup coarsely chopped green olives with pimentos
1 large sprig fresh rosemary finely chopped
6-7 sprigs fresh thyme stems removed
3 TBSP fresh oregano
1 cup fresh chopped basil
1 14 oz can tomato sauce

In a large pot heat olive oil. Add sausages and brown the outside. Add onions and garlic. Cook for a couple of minutes and then add next 5 veggies. Cook until veggies are nearly soft. Then add remaining ingredients. Simmer for 20 or 30 minutes and serve with pasta. Or for a low carb meal sub roasted spaghetti squash for the pasta.

Have you ever tried DePuma's Gluten Free Pasta?
