Number of Servings: 5


    10 serving Food Lion Italian Sausage Mild
    2 tsp Italian Seasoning
    1 package (10 oz) Broccoli, frozen
    5 serving Garlic, cooked (1 clove / serving)
    .25 tsp beef bouillion (Makes 1/4 cup)
    2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
    1 tbsp Parsley, dried
    1 tbsp Thyme, ground
    3 tbsp Butter, salted (divided)


We used dried herbs, but you could use fresh. Alternatively, you could use lemon juice, but I do not like lemon with my broccoli.


1. To make the garlic butter sausage and broccoli:
lay the sausages in a skillet with 1/2 cup water. Cook half covered for 10 minutes on medium heat, turning regularly. When the water has evaporated, add 2 tablespoons butter, half the minced garlic, and red chili pepper flakes and continue cooking for a couple of minutes, until sausages have browned in the garlic butter sauce. Transfer sausages to a plate and set aside.

In the same skillet, lower the heat and melt the remaining tablespoon butter. Add chopped parsley, thyme, remaining garlic, Italian seasoning, red crushed chili pepper flakes, and broccoli florets and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring regularly, until cooked to your liking. Deglaze with vegetable or beef stock and reduce the sauce for a couple of minutes.

4. Add the garlic butter sausages back to the pan with the broccoli and reheat quickly. Spoon the sauce over the sausage and broccoli Adjust seasoning with pepper and serve the garlic butter sausages and broccoli skillet immediately, garnished with more crushed chili pepper, fresh herbs, and a slice of lemon if you like. Enjoy!

    Since it doesn't need much else, it's not too bad for my calorie range. It's the whole meal in one skillet. I also do not use bread for it. If I did, I might only eat one sausage as a serving. We just added some peas to it.
