Delicious and satisfying, this quick meal has so much flavour plus a little kick after each bite.

Serves: 4 - 6 Preparation time: 10 min Cooking time: 30 min

1 head broccoli, cut into florets and blanched

4 cloves garlic, sliced

½ red onion, sliced

250 g cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

100 g mushrooms, sliced

45 ml (3 T) olive oil

salt and pepper

500 g chicken sausage

250 g pasta

100 g sundried tomato pasta sauce

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

1. In a large baking dish, toss the broccoli, garlic, onion, cherry tomatoes and mushrooms with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Shake the dish a bit to spread everything evenly in a single layer.

2. Nestle the chicken sausage between the vegetables. Bake for 15 minutes, then carefully toss everything again. Bake for another 15 minutes until veggies are roasted and sausage is cooked through.

3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to directions in a large pot of salted water until al dente.

4. Remove the roasted veggies from the oven. Toss pasta with pasta sauce and add in the roasted veggies. Slice the sausage and mix in as well.
