Ahead of time, boil and cook pasta al dente (approximately 5 minutes). In a skillet, sauté onions and sliced sausage until cooked. Add zucchini and squash and continue to cook until they are slightly tender. In a bowl, combine pasta, onions, olives, sausage, zucchini, and squash with spaghetti sauce.
