Gemelli Pasta with Italian Sausage and Broccoli


  • 1 cup gemelli pasta
  • 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.
