I realized today that we are apparently way behind on the Christmas decorating. There is already an inflatable snowman at the end of the street. The girls are ready for their elves to come back too. They ask about them daily. So now my only issue…how in the heck am I going to get 2 trees and a million boxes down from the attic when I have a hubby that has thrown out his back??? I have a feeling that by the end of the day there will be 2 of us with bad backs.
Megan’s usual meal request…pasta, broccoli and chicken. I decided to switch it up and give her 2 out of 3. She’s learning to branch out a little.
16 oz Mini Farfelle Pasta
18 oz Italian Sausage Links, casings removed
12 oz Frozen Broccoli Florets
1/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1/8 tsp Pepper
1/8 tsp Garlic Salt
8 tsp Parmesan Cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions, adding the broccoli florets after the first 2 minutes.
While pasta is cooking, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Crumble the sausage and drop it into the skillet. Cook sausage until browned. Remove from heat and drain.
Add pasta and broccoli to the pot.
Mix 1/4 cup olive oil and garlic together in a small bowl. Salt and pepper to taste. Toss into pasta mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
