     Pasta - Penne with Broccoli and Sausage

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   4
Preptime   25 minutes

12 oz whole grain penne pasta
1 large bunch broccoli, cut into florets
12 oz hot Italian turkey sausage
1 pt. grape tomatoes, each cut in half
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/4 cup fresh grated Pecorino Romano cheese

Cook pasta as label directs, adding broccoli during last 3 minutes of cooking. Drain pasta and broccoli, reserving 1/2 cup cooking water.
Meanshile, thinly slice sausage on the diagonal. (Precooking the sausage makes in easier to slice.) In 12 inch non-stick skillet, cook sliced sausage 7 minutes or until it begins to brown, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes and cook 5 minutes longer, stirring.
Stir pasta, broccoli, and 1/4 cup pasta cooking water into the sausage mixture and heat through, adding additional cooking water if needed. Remove from heat. Stir in basil and cheese.
NOTE- I like to substitute the grape tomatoes and water for diced tomatoes in juice. Each serving is 505 calories, 32g protien, 74g carbs, 13g total fat, 10g fiber, 760 mg sodium.
