Pasta, Sausage & Broccoli


Weather can’t make up its mind, ranging from muddy grey-brown and mild, to exquisitely silvery and frozen.  And I am tired Because Chemo and Because January.  This was a handy and simple recipe that covers all the necessary veg/protein/carb bases with a little wine and parmesan to luxury it up.  Plus I find that some brand of vegetarian sausages or other is invariably on offer at the supermarket so you can stock the freezer on the cheap.

Original from here:


Pasta, Sausage & Broccoli

  • Head broccoli, cut into small florets
  • Dried pasta
  • Several vegetarian sausages, sliced
  • Glass of red or white wine
  • Clove garlic, minced
  • Chilli powder
  • Olive oil
  • Parmesan or other hard grated cheese

Boil the broccoli until tender and drain.  The put the pasta on to boil.

Heat oil in a wok, and gently heat the garlic.  Add the chilli.

Add the sliced sausage and brown.  Then splash over the wine and allow to bubble and evaporate.

Add the broccoli and then the parmesan, and stir.  Serve hot.
