Pasta with Vegetable Medley

Last night, I wanted to finish up my open box of pasta, but didn’t want red sauce again; so I thought I’d try a sauceless pasta. I still had chicken sausage in the freezer from last week.

At the market, I bought an onion, yellow squash, and tomato. I got some of the onion (tears and all), and threw that in with some cut up sausage to add some flavor and caramelize.

Cooked sausage

While that was cooking, I chopped up my squash and tomatoes, and then put some water on to boil after the sausage was done (again, one pot). While all that was going on, I finished up a bag of salad I bought the other day. When the water boiled, I poured in the pasta and added in the squash, tomatoes, raw onion, and a few pieces of lettuce and greens (for added color!).

Salad

I ended up scooping out the vegetables early – I should have probably waited to put them in. After draining the pasta, I just added some butter into it, and mixed it in, letting it melt (I suppose if I had some, I might have done olive oil instead). Then, I re-added the vegetables and meat, and had my meal! I also added a little of the vinaigrette dressing (warm pasta salad?) for some additional flavor!

Finished! Has nice color

Finished product!
