Rigatoni with Broccoli and Sausage

Last nights dinner was super quick, easy and delicious. Oh yes, we are taking about rigatoni with broccoli and spicy Italian chicken sausage all coated in marinara sauce! I totally forgot, this dish is also packed with fiber from whole wheat rigatoni and broccoli. The chicken sausage adds LEAN protein and the marinara sauce is packed with antioxidants.

Here are the deets: Ingredients Two ounces of whole wheat rigatoni One cup of frozen broccoli florets One all natural chicken sausage, sliced Half cup of marinara sauce Salt/pepper, as needed Preparation Prepare the pasta according to the instructions on the package. Reserve a little bit of the pasta water. Once cooked, in the same pot add the reserved pasta water, broccoli, sausage, marinara sauce and salt/pepper. Add the pasta after three minutes and toss. Make sure broccoli and sausage are fully cooked. Enjoy with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese! Total calories: 370
