Kielbasa Summer Pasta

This is one of our all time favorite go-to summer recipes. It's quick and easy, tastes delicious and makes delicious leftovers that last me at least three days.

Here is everything you will need.
1 lb rotini pasta
1lb kielbasa or smoked sausage (turkey sausage works great too)
1 zucchini
1 summer squash
1 red onion
approx. 1 cup italian dressing (my favorite is Newman's Own Ceasar dressing)
1/4 cup parmesean cheese
First, slice up the zucchini and place it on a foil lined cookie sheet.
Next, slice up the summer squash. Add this to the foil lined baking sheet as well.
Next, chop the red onion into 1" squares. Add to foil lined baing sheet.
Thn slice up the kielbasa. I personally like smaller bites, so I then cut each slice in half. Add the the baking pan.
Meanwhile, start cooking your pasta according to package directions.
Then drizzle olive oil over all veggies and kielbasa on the baking sheet.
Place under broiler on high until the edges of the meat start to crisp and the veggies start looking cooked. I usually turn the broiler to low as this point so it's nice and hot after the pasta gets drained.
Lastly, toss the pasta into a bowl. Toss in the meat and veggies and add 1 cup of Italian dressing. Toss to coat and sprinkle with 1/4 cup of Parmesean cheese.
