Fire Island Ziti

I got a free subscription to Taste of Home magazine and was pretty surprised to find some good recipes. This one for Fire Island Ziti has become a regular around our house because it's easy and delicious. I made a few changes to make it even simpler and doubled it so we have leftovers.

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!

  1. Hope not to sound ignorant, but why is it named Fire Island?
