Recipe

This five ingredient Turkey Sauusage and Broccoli Pasta will get even the pickiest eaters to eat broccoli is surprisingly light.

Sausage is one of my favorite ingredients to use since it has so much flavor on its own. It means that you don't have to worry about adding lots of spices or extra fat to give your dish flavor. And since sausage pairs perfectly with pasta, one of my go-to pasta dishes is this simple one pairing turkey sausage, broccoli, and a touch of Parmesan cheese. The sausage and garlic gives the dish plenty of flavor and the Parmesan cheese and reserved pasta water create a creamy, light sauce. I almost always use broccoli but almost any veggie you have on hand or love will work. I have made it with broccolini, cauliflower, asparagus, and zucchini with success.
