ONE-POT SAUSAGE BROCCOLI PASTA

Every night around dinner time this One-Pan Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli, and Rice starts going wild. I get it.

We’re all just trying to feed our kids something semi-healthy, preferably with a green vegetable (broccoli) in it but we don’t want to do dishes and we don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking.

We all love this easy dinner. Simple ingredients with a lot of flavor. We even use turkey sausage sometimes and don’t even miss regular sausage at all.

Plus, it helps me use up my Costco sized broccoli floret bag which I bought to make this Panera Broccoli and Cheddar Soup.

If you like your broccoli a little more firm add the broccoli halfway during cooking. We like ours on the tender side.
