  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 16 oz. Italian sausage, follow same instructions as 8 oz. Italian sausage, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using diced chicken breasts, pat dry. Follow same instructions as Italian sausage in Step 4, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and stir constantly, 30 seconds.

    Cook until al dente, 11-13 minutes.

    Reserve 3/4 cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside.

    While pasta cooks, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.

    Mince garlic.

    Remove Italian sausage from casing, if necessary.

  3. 3

    Cook the Broccoli

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil.

    Add broccoli and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender but still crisp, 4-6 minutes.

    Transfer broccoli to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  4. 4

    Cook the Italian Sausage

    Add 2 tsp. olive oil and Italian sausage to hot pan. Break up sausage until no pink remains and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Add garlic and stir constantly until aromatic, 30-60 seconds.

    Add wine and stir occasionally until liquid has mostly evaporated, 1-2 minutes.

    Adding alcohol to a hot pan may cause some flames; use caution.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish
