Sausages that contain flavours like sundried tomatoes, caramelised onions, Parmesan or fennel work well in this dish.
Bring a large pan of water to the boil
and cook the pasta until nearly al dente.
Throw in the broccoli and cook for 2 mins
more. Drain, saving 1-2 tbsp of the water.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan and
add the garlic, fennel seeds, if using, and
chillies. When they start to colour a bit,
add the sausage and cook until golden
and cooked through. Tip in the pasta and
broccoli with the reserved water and toss.
Serve hot with the Parmesan shavings.
