1As you might have noticed cooked ingredients are listed because most of you know how to do this. My apologies if it's confusing. For half moon shaped sausage simply cut the sausage lengthwise in half then lay it down on a cutting board flat side down and cut into 1/8 inch pieces. I use fresh kale and boil an entire bag for 1 hour. Run under cold water so it's cool and squeeze out remaining liquid. Place in a bowl and refrigerate. I use this for several dishes
2Combine the first eight ingredients in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Or reserve the zucchini for presentation by bordering a serving platter.
3In a medium bowl combine the next 6 ingredients and whisk together until emulsified. Pour over the bowl of pasta salad and toss lightly until incorporated.
4Grate the Pecorino romano over the top prior to serving.
I prefer the Johnsonville brand of chicken sausage.
