Pasta with Hot Italian Sausage, Broccoli, and Red Peppers

Quick and easy - this would probably qualify as one of Rachael's 30 minute meals. This is my own recipe.

  • 1/2 lb pasta - I used farfalle
  • 1/2 lb hot Italian sausage, casings removed and chopped into 2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 sm onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 c dry white wine
  • 1 head broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • 3/4 c low sodium chicken broth
  • Approximately 1/2 c shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Cook pasta
  • In the meantime, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat in a large pan
  • Add sausage and start to crumble it with your spoon as it cooks; about 10 minutes.
  • Add onions and garlic, stir
  • Deglaze pan with white wine, scraping up brown bits
  • Add broccoli and red peppers; stir
  • Add chicken broth and stir; let simmer for about 8 minutes
  • Add some of the cheese
  • Add pasta and the rest of the cheese; toss to coat

Flavorful and simple, this was a nice one pot meal for a night when you don't have much time to cook, but want a hearty dinner.
