    Realtor by day, Chef by night's Note:

    We are Italian and if you go through my recipes you'll find alot of wonderful, quick and easy pasta dishes. We love our pasta and we love garlic, too! Serve this with garlic Texas toast. I can't eat pasta much anymore because I'm diabetic but my husband and daughter love it so I keep making it for them. I usually eat salmon (I have one or two good ones for salmon, too- check them out).

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Boil the water and cook the penne according to package directions. DO NOT ever add oil to the water! It will make your sauce slide off the pasta later.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, heat the oil (medium-high heat) in a large skillet and saute the broccoli, sausage and garlic until tender and starting to brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
    3. 3
      Toss the butter, hot pasta, sausage mixture and romano cheese together and serve. Pass the grated cheese at the table.

      Our entire family enjoyed this! I was hesitant that something with so few, simple ingredients could taste so good- but it was! I loved how quickly it came together.

      I'm guilty however of what I hate everyone else doing- I made a few adjustments. I added an onion and epicure pizza seasoning. Also, I reserved some pasta liquid to keep it moist. Yum!

      We enjoyed this tasty pasta dish. It was quick and easy to throw together, with ingredients that I always have on hand. Love the combo of pork sausage and cheese. I used a hot italian sausage. Next time, I will add the broccoli florets at the end. (personal preference only) Thank you so much for sharing.

      Absolutely loved this dish! Everyone had seconds. I used sun dried tomato and pesto sausages because that's what we had in the fridge. This recipe is definitely a keeper and I'll be looking to see what others you've added to this website. Thanks for sharing :)
