One Pot Pasta with Broccoli and Sausage
If you are like me and don’t love cleaning the kitchen after a meal. (although it’s great because my kids now do it after dinner – Yeah!!) Here is a great recipe with very little clean-up. Everything is cooked in one pot. It is also healthy because it includes whole wheat flour, calcium, protein, fiber, Vitamin C, K, A and folate and more.
18 ounce whole wheat penne pasta or gluten free pasta
4 Turkey Italian Sausage Links – thinly sliced (leave out for vegetarian option)
4 cups chopped broccoli
2 eggs - beaten
1 cup plain Greek yogurt (use 3/4 cup unsweetened dairy free milk and 1 tbsp flax seed mixed together for dairy free option)
½ cup grated parmesan cheese (leave out for dairy free)
Ground pepper to taste
Boil large pot of water add pasta. When pasta is cooked approximately ½ way add broccoli and sliced sausage. Cook until pasta is completely cooked and broccoli has softened. Drain. Put pasta, broccoli and sausage back in pot and immediately add eggs to pasta and stir. Add yogurt, cheese and pepper and serve. I love to make extra because it tastes great heated up the next day. My kids can use microwaves at school so they love when I send them with this in their lunch!
