I’m a huge fan of easy to put together meals with things you have around the house so this Skillet Sausage and Broccoli Pasta is a great option. I usually always have chicken broth, pasta and Parmesan on hand so when my husband picked up a bunch of sausage home I knew I had to find something tasty to do with it. If you like to buy your veggies in bulk and always have some frozen broccoli around, this recipe is perfect. This can also work with spinach if you have that on hand. This is easy to put together and a great weeknight meal for a group of hungry people. This also reheats well so it’s a good leftover option for next day lunches!
