Easy Spicy Sausage and Broccoli Pasta



Today brought a day of little productivity once the afternoon hit. I came home, feeling slightly under the weather and tried to nap it off. Ever done that? Sometimes and it works, and like today, sometimes it does not work. Well, I woke up and new the hubby would be home from work and I needed to whip up something quickly. I had those recipes that I planned from Budget Bytes - although they were all pretty easy, I decided to go with pasta. I just made noodles yesterday with chicken so I did not want a repeat of Asian or chicken, plus the recipe seemed pretty easy enough and it was.

The recipe was quick, simple and yummy. The hubby went back for seconds- so that should give some credit to the tastiness of the dish. And though Ninja stalked the kitchen patiently- nothing was dropped but I did let him have some of his homemade puppy frozen yogurt. Ninja did not have a dog park day, as we suspect he pulled a muscle- he is limping a tad and so need a few days off his feet (with minimal walking). Lets see his cute sleep self and move on to food shall we?
