During the spring and summer all of my easy weeknight meals include grilling outside. I grill while the kids play or I have my husband grill something when he gets home. Once fall comes, and then winter, it’s time to take cooking dinner indoors. I use the crockpot a lot and have a few go-to easy weeknight meals we really like. In my opinion, you can’t really go wrong with pasta, sausage and cheese, so this one is always a hit with my family. I like it because it requires very few ingredients and is so quick and easy to make.
Easy Farfalle, Sausage & Broccoli
- Johnsonville Italian Sausage
- Barilla Farfalle Pasta
- Galbani Mozzarella Cheese
- Olive Oil
- 3 Cloves Garlic
- 1 Head of Broccoli
- Oregano and pepper to taste (optional)
Cook all of the sausage links. I usually just use a pan on the stove. Once they are cooked all the way through, slice and set aside. Chop broccoli and garlic and saute it in a pan with a few tablespoons of olive oil. At the same time cook the farfalle according to the directions on the box. Add the sliced sausage to the pan with the broccoli and garlic. Add a little more olive oil to the pan along with the sausage and cook a few more minutes. Sprinkle in a little oregano and pepper to taste. Drain the pasta and add a dash of olive oil. Serve the sausage, broccoli and garlic mixture over the pasta. Shred the mozzarella cheese and sprinkle over the dish. Enjoy!
I like to use Barilla Farfalle, as Barilla is Italy’s #1 brand of pasta. I never realized that until I lived in Italy and saw that’s all they sold in the grocery store. Barilla pasta cooks up perfectly al dente every time which is key for this recipe.
We go with Johnsonville Italian Sausage for easy weeknight meals because it’s convenient and flavorful: all the spices and flavors are built into the sausage. This makes recipe prep a lot easier.
I only recently started shredding our own cheese to top recipes or pizza. Galbani’s new low moisture cylinder shaped “for shredding” is perfect for this.
I picked up all of the ingredients at Stop and Shop. When you stop by your nearest Stop and Shop between 10/21-10/27 and purchase Barilla Pasta, Johnsonville Italian Sausage and Galbani Cheese, you’ll automatically save $3 at checkout with your store loyalty card! While supplies last.
I hope you enjoy this tasty, easy weeknight meal!
