Instructions

  1. Mist a very large nonstick pan with cooking spray and cook the sausage meat over a medium-high heat for 8 minutes, stirring and breaking up the lumps with a wooden spoon as you go. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Pour in the stock and bring to a boil. Add the pasta and cook, stirring frequently, for 8 minutes, then add the broccoli and cook for a further 5 minutes, until all the liquid is absorbed and the pasta is al dente.

  4. Serve the pasta garnished with the basil and remaining parmesan.
