    RedVinoGirl's Note:

    This is an old favorite of my husband's that his family used to make, however, I've lightened it up SIGNIFICANTLY! His mom's recipe used salt lard (ick!) and a lot of oil. I love the taste of the broccoli, the pasta and the hot turkey italian sausage. This is a quick easy, low-fat dish that is very satisfying! Even my kids enjoy this one...I hope you do too! Please adjust the garlic and crushed red peppers to your taste. My family likes lots of both! NOTE: IF YOU ARE NOT A FAN OF HOT TURKEY ITALIAN SAUSAGE - USE REAL HOT ITALIAN SAUSAGE. The true recipe calls for real italian sausage but I find this recipe is just as delicious with a great quality hot turkey italian sausage.

      Very yummy! I used 1/2 lb. bow ties and 2 heads of broccoli. I also subbed a 7 oz. ham steak (cubed) for the sausage. Thanks!

      Yummy and quite quick to prepare! I used cooking spray instead of olive oil. After I combined everything together, I added 1 tbsp of butter and proceeded to add cooking liquid until it was to my desired moistness. Everyone enjoyed their "butterfly noodles" and 'roccolis. ;) Thanx for posting!
