Fresh Sausage filled Tortelloni with Homegrown Zucchini & Tomatoes 🍅

IMG_3998IMG_3996It’s garden fresh veggie time and with great friends who have a glorious garden and who are much better gardeners than I, I have found myself today with a bounty of some beautifully green tender zucchini to cook with!!❤️ I do love this time of year and look forward to all the homemade things that are coming😁 Enjoy everyone!!


3 Tablespoons of Olive oil

1/4 cup water

1 lb. of Fresh made sausage stuffed Tortelloni

2 medium plump Zucchini, cut into chunks

1 lg. Sweet onion, halved & large sliced

2 lg. Garlic, thin sliced

1 tablespoon of Italian seasonings

3 med. fresh ripe lg. tomatoes, chunked

Salt & Pepper to taste

Parmeasn Cheese

Fresh chopped Basil


In a lg. Sauté Pan or Dutch oven on medium, heat olive oil … add in garlic, onion and zucchini. Sauté moving the veggies around in the pan constantly till coated. Now add in the water and lower heat slightly, cover pan and let them simmer till all are softened, do not let burn. Once the veggies are soft, add in chunked fresh tomatoes and seasonings, let simmer till all comes together, somewhat saucy and is delicious to your taste…(drizzling more olive oil, adding more seasonings and a little salt & pepper can help). Meanwhile bring a lg. Pot of salted water to a boil and add in pasta, cook as directed till tender, then with a spider strainer carefully remove Tortelloni from water and add them to the zucchini mixture. (Saving out a sm. amount of pasta water and set aside, use if needed to help If mixture is too dry). Serve immediately garnished with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh chopped basil 🌿 Mangia😋
