Spicy Chicken Sausage & Broccolini Sautee

seafood, broccolini and cauli 013A quick dinner, cooked and ready to eat in under 30 minutes - how easy is that?!  The bitterness of broccolini is offset by the perfectly sauteed smashed garlic and red pepper flakes, all tossed together with healthy all-natural, low-fat chicken sausage.

Another great thing about this meal?  It cost us approximately $8.00 for the entire meal - including the Garlic Smashed Cauliflower with Creme Fraiche we had with it on the side.  Oh right, and it's 256 calories and 19 grams of protein for one link of sausage and five broccolini spears.

  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed with a knife then sliced up
  • 1/2 TBS red pepper flakes

  1. Slice the chicken sausages into thin pieces, then sautee in a hot pan heated with oil until browned. Add the broccolini and seasonings then stir to mix and cover and let it steam about 8-10 minutes.
  2. When the broccolini is soft, remove from heat and serve with grated parmesan cheese (optional)
