1lbhot Italian sausagecasings removed and discarded
1cupdiced tomatoescanned with juices
1mediumred peppersliced into 1-inch long strips
Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Pinch off and drop bite-size pieces of sausage into the saucepan and sauté, stirring occasionally until the sausage is cooked through but not browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and tomatoes, stir, and heat through, about 3 minutes. Add the vodka and red pepper strips. Bring sauce to a simmer and cook until red pepper starts to soften and the sauce has reduced and thickened a bit, 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the heavy cream and simmer gently to heat through, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and season with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Keep warm.
Microwave the spiralized zucchini until warm but still al dente (slightly toothsome), 1 to 2 minutes.
Divide the zucchini into 4 bowls, and spoon one fourth of the sauce on top of each, then garnish each with 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese. Serve.
