Servings: 6
What a delicious way to eat broccoli! While very simple to make, the flavors are complex and powerful.


  • 12 oz penne pasta, uncooked
  • 5 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 12 oz Italian sausage, in bulk (removed from casing)
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup water
  • Parmesan cheese


  • Cook penne pasta in rapidly boiling water until done. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add garlic and sauté until the garlic turns brown. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  • Brown sausage in the same pan and cook until done through, about 10 minutes.
  • Add broccoli and water to the pan and cook for 5 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally. The sausage will be crumbly and mixed in with the broccoli.
  • Transfer penne to skillet and cook for 2 minutes, stirring to thoroughly combine ingredients.
  • Top with the crisp garlic bits and serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
