Food Friday:Bow-Ties & Broccolini

November 21, 2008

I made this for dinner last night  and it was delicious.  If you don’t like broccolini you can probably swap it out for regular broccoli or another green veggie, although I think it is really delicious as is.  Enjoy and if you make it, please let me know how it goes!


12 oz bow tie (farfalle) pasta

1 package (20 oz) hot Italian sausage*

1 lb broccolini or broccoli rabe, cut crosswise in half

1 pt grape tomatoes

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan

Cook pasta as box directs in salted water, reserving 1 cup pasta cooking water before draining.

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook sausage, breaking up unto chunks with spoon, 4 minutes or until no loner pink.

Add reserved pasta water and broccolini to skillet.  Cover; cook 3 minutes.  Add tomatoes, cover and cook 2 minutes until tomatoes just begin to burst.  Toss with cooked pasta and Parmesan.  Serve with additional Parmesan if desired.

* you can use turkey sausage if you prefer
