Braised Broccoli with Turkey Sausage

Tina Williams, Pasadena

Tina Williams came up with this savory dish one morning for breakfast, but we thought it made a great lunch or dinner entree too, especially when served over soft polenta.

PREP AND COOK TIME: About 30 minutes

MAKES: 4 servings

  8 turkey sausage patties
    (about 8 oz. total)
  1 tablespoon olive oil
  1 onion (8 oz.), peeled, halved,
    and thinly sliced
  2 teaspoons minced garlic
  3 cups broccoli florets (about
    8 oz.), rinsed and drained
1/2 cup dry white wine
    Salt and pepper
  8 cherry tomatoes, rinsed,
    stemmed, and halved
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
    (about 1 oz.)

1. In a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat, cook sausage patties in a single layer, turning once, until well browned on both sides and no longer pink in the center, about 8 minutes total. Transfer to paper towels to drain.

2. Return pan to medium heat. Add oil, onion, and garlic and cook until onion is limp and starting to brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Add broccoli; cook 2 to 3 minutes. Add wine and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until broccoli is tender when pierced, 4 to 6 minutes.

3. Gently stir in sausage and tomatoes and cook just until hot, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
