Italian Sausage, Zucchini and Garlic Scape Pasta

This is a pretty simple pasta that relies on a good tasting Italian sausage and the fresh garlic scapes for flavour.

Italian Sausage, Zucchini and Garlic Scape Pasta

CookingAddic His dish came together in less time than it took to cook the pasta it turned out quite nicely. It was packed full of flavor and the garlicky goodness went really well with the fresh zucchini. I certainly am looking forward to the zucchini to come and this was a nice dish to start the season off with.
