Peace. Love. Ranch.

Bowties with Broccoli, Sausage and Ranch Oil

A good dash of ranch is all it takes to bring new life to pasta with sausage.

This dish is inspired by our latest food obsession, the no-recipe recipe. Unlike a traditional recipe, this dish doesn’t call for a list of fixed ingredients, so you can customize it to fit your tastes. Explore all of our no-recipe recipes here, and shake up some mealtime magic, your way.

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.
  • To get started: Bring a pot of well-salted water to a boil. Add the bowties and cook according to package directions until al dente. In the last five minutes of cooking, add a couple handfuls of small broccoli florets to the pot. Drain the pasta and broccoli together, reserving a little bit of the pasta water.
  • Warm a couple tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and stir in some broken up Italian sausage and a generous shake of Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning Shaker.
  • When the sausage is cooked through, stir in the pasta and broccoli. Toss to coat, adding some pasta water if necessary, to bring everything together. Garnish with some Parmesan cheese if desired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is so light it’s amazing I made this on a whim for my family, not thinking my kids would enjoy it so much. But they were so enthralled with them being bow ties, everything got earned. It was amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Delicious! Made this for the first time on Sunday. We used mini bowtie noodles (that all that was left at the grocery store). It was delicious and so simple to make. Will need to double it next time as my husband and sons devoured this meal that way I can have leftovers to take to work. haha

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pasta I never give 5 stars cause nothing is perfect. This is close though, good for a light quick dinner or as a side. Yummy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versitile This is really a very tasty dish. It is delicious just as it's written, or you can mix it up a bit. Don't have bowtie pasta? Try penne, or egg noodles. It also works very well with any leftover breakfast sausage you may have. Use your imagination!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite I love Bow tie noodles and ranch and brocoli. I make this at lunch time on the week ends. I try to make up enough for the entire family. They love sausage with it but you can skip the meat if you want. Lot's of flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious but, I have a secret! (shhh!) This came out delicious - but my secret is that I didn't have the shaker seasoning! I had Hidden Valley Fat Free Ranch Dressing. I drizzled a bit over the finished pasta/sausage/broccoli. You'd never and I'll never tell (but I guess I just did!)
