How to make it
- Cook pasta in salted water until al dente. Drain.
- Meanwhile, cook sausage over medium heat in a skillet with about an inch of water at bottom of pan. Cook about 5 minutes on each side. Remove & sliced once cool enough to handle.
- Meanwhile, boil a pot of salted water. Add broccoli and asparagus and cook about 5-7 minutes for firm vegetables (longer if you like them softer). Drain.
- For the sauce, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add flour and whisk with a fork until well incorporated. Add Balsamic and whisk until well incorporated. Add chicken stock and stir well. Add salt and peppers. Cook until reduced about half.
- To serve, add sausage and veggies to sauce and then serve over the pasta. Top with cheese if desired.
