Sausage and broccoli with pasta

WOW ! I haven’t had pasta, dried, that is in so long.

I’ve made the recipe before but this time less the sweet red pepper and a few substitutions so it’s a repeat of a former posting.

Mis en place early in the day, the salsicciotti was ready in the fridge, just a slight twist to make them smaller than the full size.

Here the recipe with a thanks to Nick Stellino I couldn’t find this recipe online recently. The one I have was printed out.

3 tbl extra virgin olive oil

1 and 1/2 lbs of sweet or spicy sausage

4 garlic cloves, course cut

1 red onion , medium dice

2 red peppers diced

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/2 cup white wine

3/4 lb of broccoli florets, cut to 1 inch pieces

1 1/2 cups chicken stock

3 tbl softened butter

3 tbl pecorino or romano cheese.

As you can see I didn’t cut them apart so they sprung back to full size for some.

Add the garlic, some family members may be opening the windows and activating the whole house fan to exhaust to the wonderful aroma!

Course white onions added

Nicely browned with the dried red pepper flakes

Looks like a lot of broccoli but it will cook down.

After the 30 minute simmer ,add the butter and cheese.

Plated, real good !

Rice bowl meal

Cooking the rice in boiling water in the bottom of a steamer while steaming broccoli and shrimp not exactly a oriental style of cooking. But gets the job done. Since this dish is bland alone, a spicy sauce is in order. Using a straining type spoon or strainer , plate the rice, add the contents from the steamer and your done! Add some sauce and garnish with seeds.

I had some frozen buns , Chinese style for steaming in the freezer, so I threw them in to finish them.

The finished product, with the sauce and sesame seeds.

The sauce was a no brainer, sambal sauce, rice wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, a bit of tomato paste. A ginger based sauce would be awesome also.

Definitely use this method again possibly with a different fish and combo veggie.

Sunshine Express Chinese & Japanese Restaurant

The Poke bowl very light, the contrast of the Sticky rice with the fish and dressings was very good. The sweet chili sauce was mild compared to what I am accustomed to. Again light flavors. A nice alternative to a full course Chinese dish.
