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
