pasta with sausage, broccoli and asiago…and my very first GIVEAWAY!
Oh heaven. Where do I begin?
How about here:
Yup. The editors at Martha Stewart Everyday Food magazine are clearly out of their mind as they chose to include me in their March issue, which is this fantastic issue all about eating well on a budget.
I thought someone was playing a practical joke on me when I heard from them. For reals.
One of the many delicious and budget-friendly meals in this issue happened to also make the cover (see the resemblance between images? oh you don’t? maybe my shot would look more like theirs if I bothered to read the manual that came with my camera), a pasta with broccoli and sausage. At $1.33 per serving and less than 400 calories per person it seemed perfect to share with you all, and then I thought I’d also share a little something else…
Oh snap. That would be my first giveaway. No big deal.
From the kitchens of Martha Stewart Living, Great Food Fast is so right up my alley. It has 250 recipes that are simple, easy to make and absolutely delicious, plus they are broken out by season so you can eat well all year long.
I think you’ll love it.

Pasta with Sausage, Broccoli and Asiago
(serves 6, from Martha Stewart Everyday Foods)
What You’ll Need:
course salt and ground pepper
1 pound pasta (I used whole wheat fusilli but the original recipe called for rigatoni)
2 heads broccoli, but into florets (about 4 cups)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest, plus 2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 anchovy fillets, minced (optional but really add a ton of flavor, and I don’t think the kids will notice)
1 pound Italian sausage, casings removed (I used parmesan chicken sausage from Sprouts)
Asiago cheese, grated, for serving
