Yesterday I made a super delicious and super easy pasta! It took me under 30 minutes to whip up and it is totally kid approved! I love making pasta! Its a favorite for sure and I actually came up with this pasta “on accident”. One evening I had been so busy trying to do too many things at once (per usual) that I over cooked the broccoli! I was so mad but didn’t have more broccoli to start over with and not to mention but I hate wasting food. Sooooooo long story short this delicious broccoli penne was born!
One box Penne Pasta
1 package Italian sausage
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Fresh broccoli about 12oz (4 cups or so)
1 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Butter (optional)
Serves 4 adults.
Boil salted water for pasta. Add when the water starts to boil. In the meantime….
Cook sausage in large deep pan. Also I like to remove the casing around the sausage and then break them up into 1/4 inch thick pieces. Once sausage is browned and almost cooked through take them out and drain the fat oil out of pan. Discard.
Next wash broccoli and add to the same pan with 1/2 cup of water. Cover to steam and over cook in order to be able to mash the broccoli.
Add sausage back in. Next add butter and whipping cream and cheese. Combine well and melt cheese completely.
Lastly add cooked drained pasta to the same pan as the sauce. Coat the pasta thoroughly and serve immediately! Add more parmesan if desired! Enjoy!
