Cauliflower Rice, One Pot
Dara Michalski | Cookin' Canuck
chicken Italian sausage links
small broccoli florets
cups (about 16 oz.)
red bell pepper
cut into strips
minced flat-leaf parsley
Salt and pepper
Grated Parmesan cheese
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly coat with cooking spray. Squeeze the sausages out of their casings into the skillet. Discard the casings.
Using a wooden spoon, break up the sausage as it cooks. Cook until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
Add the olive oil to the skillet, then the shallots and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Pour in the chicken broth. As the broth comes to a simmer, scrape the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon to release any cooked sausage bits.
Stir in the cauliflower rice, broccoli and red pepper. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli is tender when pierced with a fork and the broth is mostly absorbed, about 5 minutes.
Return the sausage to the mixture, along with the pesto , salt, pepper and parsley.
Serve with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
