  1. 1

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 11-13 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside. While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim bottom end from broccolini and cut into 1" lengths. Halve and peel onion. Slice one half thinly (other half yours to use as you please!). Remove Italian sausage from casing, if necessary.

  3. 3

    Cook the Sausage

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add Italian sausage to hot pan and break up into small pieces until browned and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Transfer sausage to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  4. 4

    Cook the Vegetables

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil, broccolini, and onion to hot pan. Stir occasionally until slightly tender, 5-7 minutes. Add tomato paste, cream cheese, rosee sauce, and half the reserved pasta cooking water. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, add pasta and sausage and stir until combined, 30-60 seconds. If too thick, add remaining pasta cooking water, 1 tsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Remove from burner.
