Hot Italian Sausage Pasta with Broccoli

  • 2 sausage links, sliced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 small green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, chopped

  3. In a large skillet, set heat to high.
  4. Add the sausage to the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes, flipping and cooking the other side.
  5. You may choose to keep the sausage in the pan while cooking the vegetables, or you can remove the sausage and wipe excess oil from the pan. Either way, begin sautéing the vegetables next starting with the onion and bell pepper.
  6. Check your pasta water and add pasta noodles to the water once boiling.
  7. Cook for 7-8 minutes, then add the tomatoes and garlic.

  10. Drain pasta water once the pasta is cooked to preferred doneness.
  11. Mix the pasta with the sausage and veggies and stir together well.
