Fire Island Ziti

This recipe for Fire Island Ziti is my current favorite throw-together meal. It's always delicious and comes together in the time it takes to cook the pasta.

I made the mistake of cooking the whole 1-lb box of pasta so I used a 28-oz can of diced tomatoes instead of a 15-oz. It actually worked well, despite only having a pound of sausage and two broccoli crowns cut into florets.

Fire Island Ziti
Modified from Taste of Home

1 15oz can diced tomatoes, juice reserved
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
8 ounces uncooked ziti
2 broccoli crowns cut into florets
1 pound Italian sausage links, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Grated Parmesan cheese

Cook ziti according to package directions, adding broccoli during the last 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage in oil until no longer pink. Add pepper flakes; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in tomatoes with the juice and heat through.

Drain ziti mixture; toss with sausage mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
Pin It!
