Italian Sausage with Tomatoes and Penne

I used zucchini instead of yellow squash, spaghetti noodles since I had no penne, Sweet Italian turkey sausage and chicken broth, and used light Italian salad dressing instead of the olive oil. It sounds like I didn't even make the dish doesn't it!Anyway, it was delicious! It is a great departure from the marinara or alfredo sauce pasta dishes. Using the turkey sausage and Italian dressing instead of olive oil cut WAY back on the fat and calories too. My entire family loved it and I will make it again!
