Spicy sausage paired with summer squash gives this quick pasta dish a mild kick, and the goat cheese brings the flavors of the pasta together while adding its own rich nuance.
Serve with simple Bruschetta with Herbed Tomatoes as a starter.

Just classic easy with basic ingredients that are on hand during the summer along with a good use of squash from the garden. Goat cheese was key, and used basil and oregano from herb pots just outside the kitchen instead of parsley. No problem. A light Spanish red complimented nicely.
To me, it was too bland. I tried spicing it up with more pepper and herbs, and still it was too much pasta, too little flavor. I ended up salvaging it by mixing it with some good spaghetti sauce, covering it with cheese, and baking it in the oven. Won't cook it again. First Fine Cooking failure ever!
Quick, easy, tasty - didn't change a thing
My friends and I liked this recipe but it needed a little more flavor - maybe adding some herbs when cooking the squash. We added a bit more goat cheese, and next time would use 1 lb. of spicy sausage instead of 3/4. It's worth keeping - good with sauvignon blanc.
