Broccoli, Sausage, and Pasta pair well for a delicious casserole dinner with melted cheese for creamy deliciousness. The best part for me is that it’s a Crockpot recipe.

Before I tell you who enjoyed this easy Crockpot casserole, I have to tell you why. Our air conditioner unit quit working in our home. We knew it was nearing the end and were hoping it would not quit during the heat of summer. It quit during our unseasonably warm spring.

The day they installed our new air unit was actually a very nice spring day. So I served the crew their Broccoli & Sausage Macaroni Casserole on our deck.

I’m happy to report that the men in the crew cleaned their plates and shared rave reviews of the sausage and broccoli casserole. My hubby went back for seconds and suggested we should use this recipe for pot luck dinners in the future because everyone will love it!

I like to prepare a meal for the men who are working in our home just to show some southern hospitality. I cooked a huge BBQ dinner for the floor crew who replaced all of our floorings several years ago.

My new recipe has only 7 ingredients and it’s loaded with flavor.

There is no salt added because I took advantage of the bold flavors in the sausage and the seasoning in the tomatoes.

It’s a Crockpot recipe and that is a huge time saver in my busy day.

If you have a picky eater who will only eat broccoli with it is slathered with cheese, this recipe is for you.

If your crew enjoys the heat, you can add a touch of red pepper flakes for some kick.

It would be a sausage pasta casserole but you can switch the meat to ground beef. Brown and drain the meat before adding.

Penne pasta will work in this easy pasta recipe also.

Add this dish to your favorite pasta recipes. Everyone loves it.

Sometimes if you tell the kids you are cooking broccoli, they immediately turn up their noses. So, you can tell them you are making mac and cheese with sausage and broccoli instead. This dish is like a glorified pan of macaroni and cheese.
