How to make Italian Sausage Pasta With Broccoli

Step 1: Following the package directions, cook the farfalle in a large pot of salted boiling water. About four minutes before straining the pasta, add the broccoli.

Step 2: Add the sausage meat into a hot large, nonstick skillet and cook over medium-high heat, breaking the meat into pieces as it cooks, until the sausage is golden brown and caramelized.

Step 3: To the sausage meat, add olive oil, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Step Step 4: Decrease the heat and cook further until the pasta is ready. Set aside 1 cup of pasta water, then strain the pasta and broccoli when done.

Step 4: To the skillet, add the broccoli and farfalle. Add the reserved pasta water to the skillet 1/4 c. at a time until the sausage has reduced to your desired consistency. Before serving, stir in the nutritional yeast.
