I don’t eat pasta often. But, when I do, I like it loaded up with broccoli and sausage and generously seasoned with coriander and cumin.

I know pasta and spices like coriander powder might be an unconventional combination. But they might not be as unconventional of a combination as cotton candy taco “shells” stuffed with ice cream and sprinkles – which is a for real menu item found at Jake’s Unlimited in Phoenix, Arizona!

But, I digress… getting back to this Easy Spicy Broccoli Sausage Pasta, this is a dish I urge you to expose your taste-buds to.

It is simple enough to whip up on a hectic weeknight for dinner yet tasty enough to serve at a casual weekend get-together.

The beauty of this dish is you don’t have to use exact measurements. A handful or three of broccoli will do just as well as 4 cups of it. The same goes for the sausage. Add in as much or as little as you like. If you would like to use a flavored sausage, go for it. Want to throw in a pinch of cumin or turmeric, heck yeah – go for it!

This Easy Spicy Broccoli Sausage Pasta came about because my daughter wanted something other than sausage and broccoli for dinner one night. You see, I often whip up a pan of spiced up sausage and broccoli. It is quick, super-easy and very low carb (if you are following a keto diet – this would fall under that category as well).

We had just finished leftovers of this Easy Three Bean Curry and Easy Coconut Roti, and I was armed with all the ingredients for a pan of broccoli and sausage. As we were out of quinoa and rice, my daughter suggested adding something more to that pan and seeing I had some chickpea pasta on hand, I figured that would have to do.

At first I wasn’t going to post this Easy Spicy Broccoli Sausage Pasta, but my daughter enjoyed it so much, she suggested I do so, just so she can have it online to replicate – and so, here it is. BTW, looking for a dessert to enjoy after this, then why not try this delicious Air Fryer Cheesecake?

Easy Spicy Broccoli Sausage Pasta

Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

This dish of onions, ginger, garlic, your favorite sausage, fresh broccoli, and your favorite pasta, generously spiced with coriander and chili powder, is simply delicious. It is simple enough to whip up on a hectic weeknight for dinner yet tasty enough to serve at a casual weekend get-together.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp Kashmir chili powder
  • 1 sausage link (I used Eckrich turkey sausage)
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 8 oz uncooked chickpea pasta
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Peel and chop the onion and garlic. Then slice the sausage.
  2. Add the oil to a large frying pan and add in the chopped onion and garlic and saute over a medium flame - stirring often to keep the onions from catching.
  3. Meanwhile, using a grater, grate the ginger over the onion/garlic mixture and saute about 12 minutes, until onions are translucent and turning golden.
  4. While onions are cooking, prepare chickpea pasta (or your favorite pasta) according to package directions.
  5. Move the onion/garlic/ginger mixture to the outside of the pan and add in the sliced sausage to the middle of the pan. and let sausage cook. Flip sausage slices over after about 5 minutes so each side is evenly browned.
  6. Add in the broccoli florets, coriander, and chili powder and stir well.
  7. Then cover pan and let broccoli cook for about 4- 5 minutes.
  8. Toss in the cooked pasta. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!

I absolutely love broccoli, and combining it with pasta and sausage sounds like my kinda meal! This is such a simple recipe, but I can tell it's packed with flavor...just like I like it! The fresh ginger in there is a fun addition. Thanks for the idea, Shashi...or should I say Lil Shashi? :-)
