Yield: 6 servings


1 lb. whole wheat penne

2 tsp. olive oil, divided

2 medium zucchini, sliced

1 medium yellow squash, sliced

11 oz. chicken sausage, sliced

1 red bell pepper, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 ¼ tsp. Italian seasoning

1 (28 oz.) can no added salt diced tomatoes

Salt, to taste

Black pepper, to taste

½ cup basil, chopped

8 oz. mozzarella cheese, sliced


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cook pasta according to package instructions until al dente. Drain well and set aside.

Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden. Set aside. Repeat with yellow squash.

Add remaining 1 tsp. olive oil to skillet. Stir in sausage, bell pepper and onion. Cook until onion is soft and sausage is browned, about 4 minutes. Stir in garlic and Italian seasoning. Cook for 1 minute, or until garlic is fragrant.

Stir in diced tomatoes. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, 8-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Stir in pasta, zucchini, squash and basil. Arrange cheese on top, nestling some pieces into the pasta.

Place skillet into oven and bake until bubbly and golden, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
