Pasta with Chicken Sausage and Broccoli

For the chicken sausage, I used a fresh sausage that needed to be cooked but feel free to use any sausage you like. The better tasting your sausage is, the better that this dish will taste. I had a lot of fresh broccoli on hand to use but frozen works just as well. Use whatever you have or whatever is cheaper.

For the pasta, I used a whole-wheat pasta variety. I recommend any kind of whole-wheat pasta you like or a bean based pasta. I used grated parmesan cheese but shredded or shaved parmesan would work well too. If you want this Chicken Sausage and Broccoli Pasta to be extra cheesy, I would add in some mozzarella cheese. The parsley adds lots of fresh flavor so I don’t recommend skipping it.
