Original recipe from Peace, Love and French Fries
DH begs for this meal every other week! It's super yummy and fairly easy.
1/4 C of Olive Oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small red onion, sliced thin
1 large head broccoli, cut into florets
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (more or less depends on how spicy you want it!)
1lb package of smoke sausage (beef or turkey), sliced and quartered
8 oz of short cut pasta, such as penne or rigatoni
Shredded or grated parmesan cheese
Heat olive oil in a large skillet with high sides on medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until soft, 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile, fill pot with water and start heating it up for the pasta. Slice and quarter the sausage. Add sausage to skillet and cook an additional 3-4 minutes. Meanwhile, cut broccoli into florets. Put pasta in water to cook. Add the broccoli and red pepper flakes to the skillet and toss. Continue cooking 8-10 minutes until pasta is ready. Drain pasta, but reserve 1/4 cup of pasta water. Add cooked pasta and reserved water to skillet. Heat 2-3 more minutes. Serve topped with parmesan cheese.
Hope some of you enjoy this!
