A note about serious food allergies
Sausage and broccoli are such a perfect meat-and-vegetable flavor marriage, we hesitate to add the third wheel of pasta. Just kidding! We never hesitated at all in creating this meaty delight, enhanced by a creamy pecorino sauce with a touch of heat from the red pepper flakes. We'd happily be your third wheel as you and your loved one chow down on this dream pasta. We would! Why are you texting the police?
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
