  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut broccoli into 1" pieces. Halve lemon lengthwise. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. Remove Italian sausage from casing, if necessary.

  2. 2

    Cook the Italian Sausage

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and Italian sausage to hot pan. Break into smaller pieces until no pink remains and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Transfer sausage to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

  3. 3

    Cook the Broccoli

    Add broccoli to hot pan. Cook, 1 minute. Carefully, add ¼ cup water. Cover, and cook until water is evaporated and broccoli begins to soften and is bright green, 2-3 minutes.

  4. 4

    Start the Sauce

    Uncover hot pan, and add flour. Stir until no dry flour remains. Stir in ¼ cup water, cream base, chicken base, and garlic salt until combined. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook until thickened and smooth, 3-4 minutes.

  5. 5

    Finish Sauce and Finish Dish

    Stir sausage, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, pasta, and half the cheese (reserve remaining for garnish) into hot pan until cheese has melted. If too thick, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with crispy onions and remaining cheese. Squeeze lemon wedges over to taste. Bon appétit!
