One Pan Sauce-less Pasta

One Pan Sauce-less Pasta

All pasta has the potential to be good pasta, but when combining it with our Broccoli Rabe And Mozzarella or Provolone & Parsley, it can be extraordinary. 


  • 1 pound package of Casarecce or other pasta
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 10 ounces broccoli, trimmed and cut into 3-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound of Broccoli Rabe And Mozzarella or Provolone & Parsley sausage, crumbled
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta to al dente. Add broccoli 1 minute before the pasta is done cooking and let boil. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water and set aside before draining.
  2. Add a tablespoon of oil to the pasta pot and set it on medium-high heat. Add garlic and sausage, breaking it apart as they brown, until crisp.
  3. Stir in crushed red pepper and lemon zest and juice before adding the hot pasta mixture, and parmesan cheese. Slowly add the saved pasta water, starting with 1/2 cup and adding more if needed, and mix and continue to heat until a sauce is formed.
