Linguine with Zucchini and Kielbasa

One of my favorite Kielbasa or Smoked Sausage dinners, is with sauerkraut. But, that is a fall & winter meal, to us. So, this is a meal, I found in Better Homes and Gardens - Summertime Cooking for spring and summer, that suits us a lot better for warm weather. And, it uses the ever popular zucchini. I tweaked this recipe to allow a choice of sausages. I try to use a low-fat turkey sausage.
