My family loves this recipe! Plus it is super simple, includes veggies, and is quick. What more can a mom want?
Italian Sausage & Broccoli Ingredients
- 1/2 lb Hot Italian Sausage
- 1/2 lb Mild Italian Sausage
- 3 – 4 cloves of garlic (diced)
- 14 oz Chicken Broth
- 2 Heads of Broccoli Crowns
- 2 Boxes of Pasta (I like Rotini or Rigatoni)
- Salt to taste
- Grated Parmesan Cheese
- Olive Oil
Italian Sausage Pasta Directions
Step 1: Boil the pasta.
Tip: You can use any type of pasta you’d like. I’ve been using the whole grain or whole wheat.
Step 2: While pasta water is getting hot, brown the sausage in the olive oil and garlic.
Tip: I’ve been using the chicken sausage from Sunflower Market to reduce calories. Pork works well too.
Step 3: Once the sausage is browned, add the chicken broth then turn down heat and allow to simmer.
Step 5: Cook broccoli.
Tip: To save on pans and time, I add the broccoli to the pasta when there are 5 to 6 minutes left before the pasta is done. Then drain them together.
Step 6: Drain the pasta and broccoli and add to the sausage. Stir and add salt to taste. Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
