Directions

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and add broccoli and tomatoes; mix well. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender.

Stir in the sausage, pasta, cheese, pine nuts, heavy cream, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring just to a simmer, stirring constantly; simmer 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is thickened.

Serve topped with additional grated Parmesan cheese and garnish with parsley, if desired.

Notes

Substitute 1 package Jimmy Dean Regular Flavor Pork Sausage Roll for the crumbles.
Cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes or until hot, stirring frequently; drain. Return sausage to skillet and proceed with the recipe as written.
