Chicken Sausage, Feta, and Grape Tomato Pasta

Standard

I really didn’t do much today. No homework or yoga. I did sweep the kitchen floor and I did go to Market of Choice. I took a nap. See? I’m embarrassed to even reveal how lame my day was.
But, I had a plan for dinner. So, in my twisted little brain, I do feel like I accomplished something today. Dinner was a success. I highly recommend this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 2 fresh Italian chicken sausage
  • 1 pint of yellow grape tomatoes
  • 1 package of feta
  • half of an onion, diced
  • four cloves of garlic, minced
  • mixture of herbs, minced with the garlic (parsley, thyme, rosemary)
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • half of a cup of chicken stock
  • half of a pound of whole wheat pasta

Method: Brown the sausage in some olive oil. I threw them in the pot whole, instead of squeezing them out of the casings. After they were sufficiently browned, but perhaps not cooked all the way through, I set them aside. Next, I sauteed the onion, zucchini, garlic, and herbs in the oil from the sausage. I added the whole grape tomatoes, some salt and pepper, and let it cook together until the tomatoes popped. I kind of squished them, too, so that they would release their juices to make a sauce. I sliced the sausage, added it to the tomatoes, diced the feta added it to the sauce, and added the stock. I simmered it all together until the pasta was cooked. Threw it all together. The end.
