Recipe of the Week: Organic Sausage and Broccoli Stir-Fry
1 package of organic sausage chopped into bite-size pieces, keilbasa, smoked sausage, andouille, chorizo, italian, etc.
1/2 small package fresh organic button mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
1/2 package of organic egg noodles, regular or whole wheat
2 tablespoons organic unsalted butter
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 package of frozen organic broccoli or 1 bunch of chopped fresh organic broccoli
1 clove minced garlic
Organic Parmesan Cheese
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet, medium heat. Place the sausage in the pan and cook it until it starts to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, stir and cook until the mushrooms soften and the sausage is cooked through, about 10-15 minutes. While the mushrooms and sausage are cooking, fill a large pot with water and 1 tablespoon of olive oil and bring to a boil. Cook the noodles in the boiling water for the length it says on the package, approximately 7 minutes. Drain the noodles, place in the skillet once the sausage and mushrooms are fully cooked and add the butter. Turn the heat to low or turn it off completely but let the skillet stay on the burner so the butter melts. Add the pepper to taste. While you boil and cook the noodles, fill a smaller pot with water and bring to a boil. Once the water boils add the broccoli for 1 minute and then drain. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a non-stick skilllet and add the minced garlic. Cook the garlic for 30 seconds and then add the broccoli and stir-fry the broccoli. Cook the broccoli to your liking, firm or soft and serve it with the noodles, sausage, and mushrooms. Serve with parmesan cheese(optional).
