Kids and boyfriend all loved this! Very easy to make,I especially liked the idea of boiling the pasta and broccoli together-I had never thought of that before! I used Cavatappi because I couldn't find Orecchiete at my supermarket and it was perfect.Only complaint was a little bland so I added some crushed red pepper. I also used turkey sausage. Delicious,easy new weeknight favorite.

My family loves this dish. I add a little sea salt for additional flavor (not too much though) and use freshly grated parmesan. MMMM! just like a restaurant! I have also made the recipe with asparagus instead of broccoli (family preferred the broccoli, but they enjoyed the dish anyway!). We now make this dish a couple times a month. Good dish for teenage boys that are bottomless pits! It's a good filler and they get vegetables without even realizing it!
