PASTA WITH FRIED VEGGIES & ITALIAN SAUSAGE
(renamed via us, but Martha Stewarts "Pasta with Peppers, Squash, and Tomatoes ")
Approx. Time 45 Minutes // Serves 4

Ingredients
Coarse salt
3/4 pounds rigatoni (we used "brain noodles (as W puts it) instead)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb sweet or spicy Italian sausage, casings removed
1 bell pepper (not green, we used red), cut into 1/4-inch strips
1 small yellow squash, cut into 1/4-inch rounds
2 pounds cherry tomatoes, halved red-pepper flakes
1 red onion, cut in lengthwise long strips (this was something we added additional)
Grated Pecorino Romano, for serving

Directions
1.) In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water, then drain. 2) Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 1 Tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking apart with a slotted spoon until cooked through, about 6 minutes. With slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a bowl. 3.) Add 1 Tablespoon oil and bell pepper to skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned in spots, 6 minutes. Add squash and 3/4 tomatoes; cook 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup pasta water and cook until tomatoes soften, 4 minutes. Return sausage to pan and add remaining tomatoes. Season with red pepper flakes. Cook until sausage is warmed through and juices thicken slightly, about 2 minutes. Toss with pasta; if necessary, add remaining pasta water to create a light sauce that coats pasta. Serve with Pecorino Romano.
