Angel hair pasta with chicken sausage, red bell pepper, and broccoli
Yeah, things are still pretty busy. We're getting there, though. SOON.
In the meantime, have some pasta.
AKA Angel hair pasta with chicken sausage, red bell pepper, and broccoli
red bell pepper
salt, pepper, red pepper flake
angel hair or your choice of pasta
Boil water and cook your pasta at an appropriate time in the cooking process.
Slice up your chicken sausage and sear on both sides in a hot saute pan of your choice. Most sausages will have plenty of fat, but you may want to add a bit of olive oil to the pan anyway.
When your sausage bits are beginning to turn golden brown, reduce the heat to medium and add in some chopped onion or garlic. I honestly have no idea which I used here; either will be fine. Stir it up and let cook while you prep the other veg.
Chop the head of your broccoli into little florets. Peel the stem and dice it up. Finely shred some green cabbage if you happen to have a quarter of a cabbage lying around. Seed and dice a red bell pepper.
When your onion is soft, add your broccoli and cabbage to the pan. Salt, pepper, and red pepper flake it up. Cook, stirring occasionally. until the veg is just barely tender.
Add your red pepper to the pan for the last minute or two of cooking. When it's done, you're done.
Drain your pasta and toss it into the pan of veg and sausage. Stir everything together and serve.
Do you want parmesan cheese? You can have some. Or you cn have some parsley. Whatever you like will be good.
Now collapse on the couch and go to sleep.
