Hey guys!! Today I am going to share with you an amazing quick pasta dish that is out of this world delicious! It is one of my favorites because it is so quick but so yummy and it just seems a little more refined than our normal pasta night. It’s an elevated dish but still simple and amazing!
Crumbled Italian sausage and broccoli are bathed in a creamy garlic parmesan sauce and everything gets tossed with orecchiette pasta, my favorite!
I just start by browning up some Italian sausage in a large skillet.
Then I add a little butter and flour and let that all cook together with a little fresh garlic.
Next comes milk and it all bubbles together till thickened.
A little parmesan and pepper gives this dish great flavor.
Then I toss in the steamed broccoli and Orechiette pasta.
Serve it up with a gorgeous side salad and crusty bread and in less than 30 minutes you have gorgeous dinner!
