Italian Sausage and Penne Pasta Recipe

Ingredients:
8 ounces Italian sausage, cut in bite-size chunks (sweet & mild)
2 tablespoons garlic, minced (you can use less if you want)
1 lb penne pasta
1 lb broccoli floret (I use frozen)
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup grated pecorino romano cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil


Preparation Instructions:
Boil the water and cook the penne according to package directions. DO NOT ever add oil to the water! It will make your sauce slide off the pasta later. Meanwhile, heat the oil (medium-high heat) in a large skillet and saute the broccoli, sausage and garlic until tender and starting to brown, about 15 to 20 minutes. Toss the butter, hot pasta, sausage mixture and romano cheese together and serve. Pass the grated cheese at the table.
