Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    In a large pan, heat the oil and cook the sausageballs until golden, moving them around in the pan frequently. Meanwhile, mix together the eggs, cheese and some seasoning with a fork in a jug.

  • STEP 2

    Cook the pasta following pack instructions. Add the broccoli for the final 3 mins, then drain, reserving a cup of the cooking water.

  • STEP 3

    Add the garlic to the sausageballs and cook for a couple mins more, being careful the garlic doesn’t brown. Remove the pan from the heat.

  • STEP 4

    Add the pasta and broccoli to the sausage pan. Toss everything together, then add the egg mixture. Stir the sauce through the pasta for 1-2 mins. The heat from the pan will cook the sauce – if it is too thick, use a little of the reserved cooking water to thin it. Divide between pasta bowls and serve with extra Parmesan, if you like.
