Roasted Tomato and Sausage Pasta
with broccolini

Active: 45 Total: 45

Roasted tomatoes make a delicious rustic "sauce" for pasta. Even better if they cook at the same time and on the same pan as sausage and a vegetable side dish.
Smarts: A single sheet pan is all you need for 4 servings, but if you are making more than 4 servings you may need a second sheet pan so all of the ingredients have plenty of room. 



Roasted Tomato and Sausage Pasta:
  • Broccolini - 1 bunch , trimmed
  • Sausage, any pre-cooked - 12 oz , sliced or cubed (we like chicken apple sausage or another smoked sausage )
  • Tomatoes, cherry or grape - 2 cups , halved
  • Basil leaves, fresh - 10 leaves , sliced
  • Oil, olive - 3 Tbsp
  • Oregano, dried - 2 tsp
  • Garlic powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Red pepper flakes (opt) - 1/2 tsp
  • Pasta, any gluten-free - 8 oz
  • Cheese, mozzarella pearls - 6 oz (sub regular mozzarella, chopped)
  • Cheese, parmesan - 2 oz , grated


  1. Broccolini / Sausage / Tomatoes - (If prepping right before cooking, get the oven heating first.) Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  2. Basil - Slice basil.

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. Set out a sheet pan. Add tomatoes and sausage. Drizzle with olive oil, oregano, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. Gently toss to combine. Arrange broccolini around the edges of the pan. Drizzle with some more olive oil. Season everything with some salt and pepper.

  3. Bake the ingredients, stirring halfway through cooking, until the broccolini is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

  4. While the vegetables and sausage bake, bring a large stockpot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions. 

  5. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and take broccolini off the pan. Set it aside on a serving plate. 

  6. To remaining ingredients on the sheet pan, scatter mozzarella pearls over top. Return it to the oven and continue roasting until the cheese is melted, ~5 minutes more.

  7. Drain pasta and spread out on a serving plate. Top with sausage, tomatoes, and mozzarella. 

  8. Top pasta with basil and parmesan. Serve broccolini on the side. Enjoy!
