One-Pot Sausage Broccoli Pasta

One-Pot Sausage Broccoli Pasta is an easy Italian weeknight dinner that comes together in less than 30 minutes. Creamy pasta, spicy sausage, and tender broccoli all in a one-pot dish, this One-Pot dinner is amazing.


Every night around dinner time this One-Pan Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli, and Rice starts going wild. I get it.

We’re all just trying to feed our kids something semi-healthy, preferably with a green vegetable (broccoli) in it but we don’t want to do dishes and we don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking.

We all love this easy dinner. Simple ingredients with a lot of flavor. We even use turkey sausage sometimes and don’t even miss regular sausage at all.

Plus, it helps me use up my Costco sized broccoli floret bag which I bought to make this Panera Broccoli and Cheddar Soup.



  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 white onion, diced, (about 3/4 cup)
  • 8 ounces spicy pork or turkey sausage
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 1/2 cups medium pasta shells (or any other small shape pasta)
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese , (more for topping)


  1. In a pot or large saucepan with high sides, add the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onion and sautee for a couple of minutes. Add the sausage. Brown and crumble the sausage. Add the garlic for the last 30 seconds of cooking.
  3. Pour in the chicken broth, cream, rosemary, pasta, and broccoli (see note). Bring to a boil and cook for 10-15 minutes or until sauce thickens (mine thickens around 12 minutes). 
  4. Stir in the Parmesan cheese and add salt if needed. Serve immediately with additional grated Parmesan cheese on top.


If you like your broccoli a little more firm add the broccoli halfway during cooking. We like ours on the tender side.
