Sausage and Broccoli Pasta

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by JesseandRayye

I was craving pasta one night and couldn't find a recipe that looked good.. so i made up my own. Not bad, I think it has nice flavour. You can use fresh or frozen broccoli, but if you use frozen I recommend defrosting in the microwave for a minute or so, just so its not too cold.

Delicious and it feeds a lot! I made it for us and our company and it was a great hit. I did add some red pepper flakes for a little zing and some tomato sauce as a previous reviewer did to thicken the sauce a little more. I did use turkey hot Italian sausage and would definately make this again. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2013.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil pasta in salted water to al dente.
  2. While pasta is boiling, remove casings from sausage and scramble fry with onions and garlic until no longer pink.
  3. Add tomatoes, undrained, and bring to a boil.
  4. Add salt, pepper, basil and Italian seasoning. Boil 1 minute.
  5. Add broccoli and cook until soft.
  6. Continue cooking to desired consistency (I like it a little runnier than most, I like to soak up sauce with bread).
  7. Add half the parmesan cheese, and mix through (optional).
  8. Toss pasta with sauce.
  9. Serve hot and sprinkle with more parmesan, if desired.
