This is my go-to pasta recipe--so easy.
Penne with Sausage & Broccoli
1 lb Italian sausage
1 package frozen chopped broccoli, defrosted
1 tsp red chile flakes
1 lb penne pasta
Cook pasta according to package instructions in boiling salted water and drain. Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
Brown the Italian sausage and drain the oil. Add the broccoli and red chile flakes. Add the pasta and the pasta water and that's it!
