Broccoli and Sausage Cavatelli

My mouth is watering just hearing the name of this recipe. It calls for cavatelli pasta, which looks pretty much like rotini pasta to me! I'll use that when I make this, and substitute turkey sausage for spicy sausage. Mmm, mmm.

Broccoli and Sausage Cavatelli
  • 1 pound spicy Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (16 ounce) package cavatelli pasta
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen broccoli
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. In a skillet, fry sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain, and reserve.
  2. In the same skillet, cook garlic in olive oil until golden.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes or until done; drain. Three minutes before the end of the cooking time, add broccoli; drain with pasta.
  4. In a large serving bowl, toss together the sausage, olive oil and garlic, cavatelli and broccoli, and Parmesan. Season with red pepper flakes.
