Feed Me: Sausage and Broccoli Pasta

One of my favorite things about cooking is taking a recipe and making it your own. I always find lots of inspiration from cooking magazines and The Food Network. Sometimes I get too excited watching food shows and I go out and buy all the ingredients, when we already have plenty of food in the house. So for this recipe I wanted to use all ingredients that were already in our house.


Since my husband and I love shopping at Costco we happened to have a 5lb bag of broccoli hanging around, as well as 5lbs of spicy sausage. I did a few searches for broccoli, sausage, and pasta and I got a ton of recipe suggestions.




I started putting a bunch of ingredients together, going off my instinct, and it turned out AMAZING.. I love it when that happens.



Lots of delicious veggies, pasta, and spicy sausage-I’m sure another protein work well too. However I do think the spicy sausage made this dish.

Sausage and Broccoli Pasta: Serves 6-8


  • 1 lb Spicy Sausage-cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 Cups of Broccoli Chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 Cup Chopped Mushrooms
  • 1/2 Cup of Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • 1 Onion Chopped
  • 1 Box Pasta
  • 1/4 Cup of Chicken Broth
  • 1/4 Cup of Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable Oil 1-2 Tablespoons


  • Start a pot of boiling water, make sure to add salt!
  • Cook vegetables in the oil until they are cooked, but not mushy. Remove from heat.
  • In the same pan cook sausage until almost all the way cooked through.
  • Add vegetables back in with the sausage and add chicken broth.
  • Bring to high heat and and then simmer to let juices cook off.
  • Combine cooked pasta and sausage mixture into a separate bowl. Add a few pepper shakes and some Parmesan cheese. You shouldn’t need salt, but feel free to add it if you do!
