Bowties with Broccoli and Sausage

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 10 minutes
    •    Cook time: 25 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


    •    1 tbsp olive oil
    •    Salt and pepper
    •    1/3 cup pimiento strips (2 oz.)
    •    1 pound bowtie pasta (farfalle)
    •    4 sweet or hot Italian sausages (1 1/4 lb.)
    •    1/2 cup grated Parmesan (2 oz.), plus extra for serving
    •    1 head broccoli, stalks removed, cut into small florets (about 6 cups, loosely packed)


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add broccoli and return to a boil. Cook until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain well and transfer to a bowl. Add salt, pepper and olive oil. Mash roughly with a fork.
  2. Remove casings from sausages and crumble meat into a large skillet. (Or cut into slices and brown sausages in casings.) Add 1/4 cup water and cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until water has evaporated, fat is rendered and sausage is no longer pink anywhere, 10 to 12 minutes.
