My Favorite Pasta Recipe

1 box penne pasta
1 package sweet italian sausage
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 sliced zucchini's
1 package sliced mushrooms
1 package cherry or grape tomatoes (cut in half)
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
fresh grated parmesan or romano cheese (to taste)

Cook noodles according to package instructions.
In a big ol' sauce pan, put olive oil, pine nuts, onion, and garlic. Add sausage. Cover (so the sausage cooks faster) and cook. When the sausage starts to turn grey, cut it into bite size pieces and recover, stirring frequently. Once sausage is cooked through, throw in zucchini. Once that starts to soften, throw in mushrooms. Once mushrooms are cooked, put in tomatoes. Wait about 1-2 minutes and put in basil at the very end. Immediately toss meat mixture with penne pasta.
Garnish with cheese to taste.
Yummy. Serves 8-10.
