21 Day Fix Pasta with Broccoli & Chicken Sausage

I found this recipe on this blog:  Carrie Elle Lifestyle Blog

It looks like this: Pasta-with-Broccoli-and-Chicken-Sausage-add-pasta

Ingredients:

  • 1 small head of broccoli
  • 1 9oz package of fresh pasta (I used RP’s Gluten Free Fusilli)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 package of sweet Italian chicken sausages, sliced into rounds
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley, chopped
  • Himalayan pink salt (or sea salt) to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  1. Chop the broccoli into florets and steam for 3-5 minutes until vibrant green but not mushy. Remove from the pot and set aside.
  2. Fill the same pot of water and bring to a boil. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile dice the onion, mince the garlic, and slice the chicken sausage into small rounds.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over a medium heat.
  5. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until translucent.
  6. Add the chicken sausage and cook for 6 minutes, stirring halfway through to flit the sausage so it browns on each side.
  7. Add the garlic and the steamed broccoli to the pan. Cook for 1 minute until the garlic becomes fragrant.
  8. Add the cooked pasta.
  9. Top with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste.
