Ingredients

  • 6 ounces Italian-style turkey sausage
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 ounces tube-shaped pasta, such as ziti or penne
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups corn (fresh, canned, or thawed frozen)
  • 12 ounces cherry tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese for serving (optional)
  • Crushed red pepper flakes for serving (optional)

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of salt to the water, and cook the pasta until it's al dente. Before draining the pasta, reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
  • Meanwhile break apart the sausage into small pieces and cook in 1 tablespoon of oil in a large saute pan until nicely browned (about 10 minutes or so).
  • While the pasta is cooking and sausage is browning, rinse your broccoli florets and halve any of the tomatoes that are especially large.
  • Once the sausage has browned, add the broccoli and garlic to the pan, stir to combine everything and then reduce the heat, cover the pan and let cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the corn and tomatoes, cooking covered for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add the drained pasta, reserved pasta water, salt and remaining olive oil. Stir to combine everything over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Alternatively, you can dump everything into the pasta pot to combine if your saute pan isn't quite large enough.
  • Turn out to a warmed pasta bowl and serve with grated parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes, if you like.
