    This recipe makes four to six servings.


    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 cup of onion, chopped
    • 1 chorizo sausage, chopped
    • 3 to 4 cloves of garlic
    • 2 each red pepper chopped
    • ¼ - ½ teaspoon chili pepper flakes
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • ½ cup white wine
    • 1.5 cup chicken broth
    • 1 pound broccoli, chopped
    • 1 pound cooked pasta (we used Barilla – Campanelle)
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • ½ - 1 cup grated Pecorino Romano


    • Heat oil in a large pan and add the onion. Cook for three to five minutes or until lightly browned.
    • Next add the chopped chorizo and stir in well. Then add the garlic and cook for one minute.
    • Toss in the chopped peppers, chili pepper and kosher salt and stir in well. Cook, stirring often for two to three minutes over medium heat.
    • Pour in the wine and chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Add the chopped broccoli and cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally.
    • Toss in the cooked pasta and stir to coat well. Simmer with the pasta for a minute or so to reduce the sauce a little and heat the pasta thoroughly.
    • To finish, stir in the butter and cheese and transfer to pasta bowls.
