Bowties w/ broccoli & sausage
- Cook the bowtie pasta according to package directions. Add the broccoli florets to the pasta water with 5-6 minutes left before the pasta is done. (*If you're not adding pureed veggies, keep ½ cup pasta water before draining.)
- Cook broccoli till tender. Either keep the florets whole OR add salt, black pepper and oil to broccoli and roughly mash, depending on your family's preference.
- Drain pasta and return to pot. Add broccoli, sausage mixture, parmesan, and either the pasta water or the optional pureed vegetables. Toss and enjoy.
