Recipe: Summer Garden Pasta with Chicken Sausage

A year or so ago I discovered this delicious product:
With a little trial and error, I have created a simple recipe that has become one of our family's favorites.  I'd love to share it with you! 
1 Package Al Fresco Sundried Tomato Chicken Sausage with Basil and tomatoes, chopped. (NOT Italian sausage!  I made that mistake once...it's good sausage, it just does not work well with this particular recipe!)
1 package Bow tie pasta (You can use whatever you have on hand...but this shape/size works well.)
2 small yellow squash
2 small zucchini (I've used spinach before, too.)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fresh Garlic
Fresh Parmesan Cheese
     Cook pasta in a large pot according to package directions.  While the water is coming to a boil, chop up the squash and zucchini into small chunks.  Saute the squash/zucchini in a pan with olive oil until it is cooked/slightly browned.  Add 2 cloves of fresh garlic to the squash/zucchini during the last few minutes of cooking.  When the pasta is cooked, drain and put back into the pot with a generous amount of olive oil.  Add the squash/zucchini/garlic to the pasta pot and stir.  In the same pan, add a little more olive oil and cook the sausage until heated through/browned.  Stir all together.  Place a generous amount on each person's plate and top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
