Italian Sausage Pasta Toss
I literally threw this recipe together on whim. What was supposed to be a chicken dish ended up being a dish made with Italian chicken sausage instead. I'm so glad I ended up substituting the chicken sausage. This dish was not only delicious but healthy too, and a hit with the family!
Italian Pasta Toss
Cal 355, Carbs 47.5, Fat 11.3, Fiber 4, Protein 17.8
1 14oz. package Italian chicken sausages (I used Johnsonsville)
2.5 cups Italian seasoned broccoli (I used green giant)
12 oz. short pasta (I used elbows)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
Cook pasta to al dente. Drain and set aside.
In a large non stick saucepan brown the sausage and garlic. Once lightly browned add in the broccoli. Cook about 4 minutes or until tender. Add in the pasta, olive oil, parmesan, salt, and red pepper flakes. Toss until well combined. Enjoy!
