Smoked sausage and fresh roasted broccoli make this pasta an incredible dinner.
- 1 lb. fresh or frozen broccoli florets sliced in half
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 (8oz) box pasta (we use gluten free)
- 4 to 6 links Andouille sausage (sliced)
- 1 cup Alfredo sauce (we used Newman’s)
- parmesan cheese (for serving)
- Preheat oven to 425(F) degrees and prepare a baking sheet with non-stick spray. In a large bowl, mix the broccoli, olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread broccoli evenly on prepared sheet and roast for about 15 to 20 minutes.
- While broccoli is roasting, cook pasta according to package directions (drain and set aside) and heat a non-stick skillet to medium-high and cook the sausage links for about 5-7 minutes.
- When broccoli is done, carefully remove from oven and add to prepared pasta. Add in sausage and alfredo sauce.
- Add in a little extra milk if needed, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
