Instructions
1

Boil a large pot of water for the pasta. Add ¼ tsp of salt.

2

Chop the Tenderstem broccoli widthways into 3 pieces. Cook the Tenderstem in the boiling water for 1 minute. Remove the Tenderstem from the water but keep the water for the pasta.

3

Cook the pasta in the water for 10 mins. Reserve 4 tbsp of the pasta water then drain.

4

Heat a frying pan up on medium high heat. Add in the pine nuts and toast them for a few mins. Tip: Watch the nuts like a hawk as they can burn easily. Remove and keep to the side.

5

Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, cut open the sausages and cook the meat in the pan (discard the skins). Cook for around 5 mins until nicely browned off.

6

Add the Tenderstem and chilli and cook for 2 mins. Season with ¼ tsp of salt and a few grinds of pepper.

7

Add 4 tbsp of reserved pasta water then add the pasta. Add 2 tbsp of pesto and stir.

8

Serve with a sprinkle of pine nuts.
