Hearty Broccoli and Orecchiette

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

A classic Italian combination is filled out with mushrooms and spicy soy sausage for a hearty main dish.
  • 1 cup orecchiette pasta
  • 6 cups small broccoli florets
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3 cups sliced button mushrooms
  • 1 Soyrizo sausage (6 oz.), chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)

1. Cook pasta according to package directions for al dente in large pot of boiling, salted water; add broccoli 3 minutes before end of cooking time. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta-cooking water; drain pasta and broccoli, and set aside.

2. Wipe out pot, add oil, and heat over medium heat. Add mushrooms and Soyrizo, and cook 7 to 10 minutes, or until mushrooms are browned. Stir in garlic, and cook 30 seconds. Return pasta, broccoli, and reserved pasta-cooking water to pot, and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until heated through. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Do I really only use 1 cup of dried pasta?

I made this when my 5 year old son requested broccoli! I adapted it to my own tastes by adding a few ingredients - sundried tomatoes & onion - and increasing the amount of other ingredients (the pasta, garlic & sausage). It was very good and will definitely make an appearance again soon. I reviewed it and posted a pic on my blog: dosedependent.me. Thanks for all the great recipes!!
