This orecchiette with Italian sausage and broccoli is a quick, easy and filling dinner that your family will love.
While you’re cooking the sausage it’s very possible that there will be bits that stick to the bottom of the skillet. That’s ok; actually, it’s a good thing. Those bits that stick to the bottom are caramelized meat – it’s called fond and it adds a ton of flavor to soups and sauces. In this recipe we will deglaze the skillet (lift the bits off the bottom) using milk. When you add the milk to the skillet, gently scrape the bottom using a wooden spoon and work in a circular motion.
