Method

  1. Heat the grill, and cook the sausages for 10-12 mins or until cooked through and golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small frying pan, cook the onion for 6-8 mins until soft, then add the garlic and cook for 1 min. Set aside.
  3. Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the broccoli for 3-4 mins until tender but still with a bite. Lift out using a slotted spoon and set aside.
  4. Add the pasta to the water you have just cooked the broccoli in and cook following pack instructions. Drain well and return to the pan.
  5. Chop the sausages into 2cm pieces and toss with the pasta, then chop the broccoli roughly and add to the pasta along with the cooked onions, garlic, chilli flakes, and lemon zest and juice. Toss everything together well with the rocket and season.

Yum! Didn't have rocket so just tossed in some dried mixed herbs. Delicious!

Great recipe! Had never thought of mixing lemon and sausages but it works brilliantly. Will certainly make again
I added a dollop of mayonnaise for a bit of creaminess (I used macaroni pasta so had more surface to cover!) and some halved cherry tomatoes.

We've had this for dinner twice this month, and loved it both times. I'm allergic to chilli peppers so leave them out and add them at the table, and my family tells me this dish works both with and without the chilli kick.

I used more sausages but liked this. Lemon cut through greasiness of the sausage. Already made twice. Will make again.
