One-Pan Indian Spiced Chicken and Cauliflower

I am so excited to partner with my friends at Tuttorosso Tomatoes for today’s recipe. You’ve heard me say it before, and I’ll say it again; I absolutely LOVE their canned tomato products. If you remember, I visited their factories and farms last year, and have grown to know and trust the family, brand, and the products they put out for us consumers. I can honestly say they are the best canned tomatoes I’ve tried, and I’ve done actual taste tests!

There 14.5 ounce cans of diced tomatoes are a pantry staple!

Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Pasta

This Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Pasta is the perfect light Italian-style dish that comes together in no time! 

Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Pasta

When I received Ali’s newest cookbook, Inspiralize Everything, in the mail, I was immediately so excited. Ali has created an awesome online resource for all things spiralized, she has her first cookbook which was fabulous, so I knew I would just love her second book! 

Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Pasta

This book is beyond gorgeous and packed with so many recipes all categorized by various vegetables. I can’t wait to make the Turkey, Spinach, and Hummus Roll Ups as a snack, and the Winter Lasagna with Butternut Squash, to name a few!

Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Pasta

I have been eying the Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Parsnip pasta, but I had summer squash from the farm leftover, so I decided to spiralize it and sub that in, and man was it delicious! I love light Italian meals that are flavorful but not super heavy!

Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Parsnip Pasta

Preparation 15 min 2017-06-23T00:15:00+00:00 Cook Time 15 min 2017-06-23T00:15:00+00:00

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe
  • 2 hot Italian sausage links, casings removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 parsnips, peeled, spiralized with blade d, noodles trimmed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Rinse the broccoli rabe and pat dry. Cut off most of the stems (the thickest parts). Using a vegetable peeler, pull some skin off the stems, and continue to until you hit the leaves. Chop into 1-inch pieces and set aside.
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat. When water flicked onto the skillet sizzles, add the sausage and oregano and cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Using tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to a plate.
  • Immediately add the broccoli rabe, parsnip noodles, garlic, and red pepper flakes to the skillet. Season with salt and black pepper, then add the broth. Cook until the broth has reduced and the parsnip noodles are al dente, about 5 minutes.
  • Return the sausage to the skillet, add the cheese, and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and toss the ingredients to combine fully.
  • Divide among four plates, garnish with the parsley, and serve.
  • Recipe Notes

  • 1. I used 1 large summer squash instead of parsnips, so I omitted the chicken broth step!
  • 2. If you don’t like the bitterness of broccoli rabe, try parboiling it after trimming. Bring a large pot filled halfway with water to a boil, add the broccoli rabe, cook for 3 minutes, then transfer to a bowl of ice water. Otherwise, broccolini or plain broccoli are great choices with similar textures.
  • Broccoli Rabe and Sausage PastaI highly recommend you picking up a copy of this fabulous cookbook if you love your spiralizer as much as I do!

    Happy cooking!

    Grilled Fish Bowls with Garlic Scapes and Kale

    Last year was my first year of joining a local CSA and frequenting my new town’s farmers markets. I came home week after week with incredible amounts of produce, many of which at a loss of what to do with. (P.S. if you’re looking to save money eating organic, a CSA is an amazing resource). 

    I hate to say it, I wasted a lot last year. I often didn’t use up all of those more unique ingredients. But not this year.

    This year, I’m teaming up with my fabulous friends Juli (from PaleOMG) and Cassy from Fed and Fit to bring you a recipe a week inspired by our CSAs and Farmer’s Market hauls! That’s right. Every week you’ll get THREE delicious recipes to inspire you to cook something new, try a new ingredient, or just enjoy that fresh local produce!
