Make a bold statement by bringing together Hillshire Farm® Smoked Sausage with Gorgonzola cheese and a touch of hot sauce.
8 (about 1½ cups each)
(16 ounces) uncooked penne
fresh small broccoli florets
(7 ounces) refrigerated basil pesto
(5 ounces) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
green onions, sliced
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
Cut sausage into ½” cubes; set aside. Cook pasta according to package directions. During the last 4 minutes of cooking, add broccoli to water. When penne and broccoli are tender, drain; keep warm.
Heat a 4-6 quart pan over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Add sausage and onion to pan; cook 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally until sausage is browned and onion is tender.
Add hot sauce, cooked penne and broccoli. Toss gently over medium heat for 1 minute. Stir in pesto, Gorgonzola and green onions; heat through. Add salt and pepper to taste.
