Ingredients

1/4 onions, coarsely chopped 50 g
1 cup cauliflower, cut into small florets 140 g
1 tsp olive oil 5 mL
2 chicken sausages 150 g
1/4 dried chili peppers, minced 0.1 g
1/2 cup chicken broth, warm 125 mL
100 g penne rigate 1 1/4 cup
4 tsp Parmesan cheese, grated 4 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: Coarsely chop the onion and cut the cauliflower into small pieces (about 2 cm).
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté 2-3 min with stirring.
  3. Remove the skin from the sausage, then add the meat to the pan. Break up the meat using a wooden spoon and cook 4-5 min until it looses its pink colour. Add the chili pepper (if the sausage is not already spiced). Pour in the warm broth and stir in the cauliflower. Bring to a boil then lower the heat.
  4. Cover and simmer 10 min until the cauliflower is cooked al dente and the broth is almost completely absorbed (the sauce should still be moist).
  5. Meanwhile, cook the pasta.
  6. Drain the pasta then pour it into the frying pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with the grated cheese then toss well. Serve in the warmed dishes.
