Gemelli Pasta with Italian Sausage and Broccoli
- 1 cup gemelli pasta
- 1 Italian sausage case removed
- 1/2 cup broccoli florets
- 2 tsp tomato paste
- salt and pepper
Remove the casing from the sausage by lightly running a knife down the link. The casing will peel off easily.
Cut the sausage into 1/2 inch pieces. Put the pasta and sausage into the Lekue Pasta Steamer and add enough water to cover the pasta. Place the steamer in the microwave and cook for 7 minutes at 800watts. Add the broccoli to the steamer and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove the steamer from the microwave, flip the lid and drain all but a couple tablespoons of the water. Add the tomato paste directly to the cooked pasta and mix around so the tomato paste thins out, creating a light sauce.
Season with salt and pepper.
