Return the water in the kettle to aboil and cook the linguine according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a deep 12-inch skillet over moderately high heat for 1 minute.
Add the sausage and onion and saute, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes.
Add the zucchini and garlic and saute, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 5 minutes or until the zucchini is tender.
Stir in the yogurt and pepper and turn the heat under the skillet to the lowest setting.
