Penne with Sausage, Tomatoes and Potatoes and Zucchini Flowers

Penne with sausage, tomatoes and potatoes and zucchini flowers.


We live next to wonderful neighbors that this year have started their own vegetables garden. As you know, we live in Phoenix and gardening can be, for lack of better word,  a bit of a challenge. Not only our summer heat is cruel to our garden, but we have an abundance of bunnies that adore anything that we plant. You can actually see those little furry creatures patiently waiting for the little buds to come up from the ground, so they can have a feast.
Bunny situation under control by using a high bed and double chicken wire, “J & J”, my neighbors, have been successful on growing zucchini, squash, herbs as well as great salad.  Salad that I have enjoyed for the past week as they kindly share it with me.
During one of our walk I noticed that they have zucchini flowers and could not stop myself of mentioning that I really love them stuffed with anchovies and mozzarella.  Yesterday “J” brought me some and I was thrilled.
Anchovies and mozzarella purchased, our little treat was prepared while fixing dinner.  I was so excited that I forgot to take a picture of the finished product.  Not having my mom recipe with me and not having her at a phone call reach, I made the batter as I was going along.  It turned out good even though I know I was missing something in the batter.
For dinner a one meal dish was of order. Penne with sausage, tomatoes and potatoes. Simple and easy and nothing to it.
Bon Appetit!!
