Ingredients

  • 2.5 pounds Sweet Italian Sausage .....Spicy sausage would be great also.
  • 1 bunch broccolini .....If it doesn't come in bunches, get about 1 pound.
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella .....I love the sliced version from Costco.
  • 1 pound jar of cherry peppers
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 tspn kosher salt
  • 1/4 tspn black pepper
  • 1/4 tspn garlic powder

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 425 degrees.  When oven comes to temp place sausages on sheet pan and cook in oven for 20 minutes.
  • While sausage is cooking chop lower 1 inch of broccolini stems off and discard.  Drain cherry peppers and remove stems from each pepper.  Chop peppers in half or quarters depending on size.
  • Remove sausage from oven and let cool for a few minutes.  Cut sausages in half.  
  • Place broccolini on top of each sausage, evenly distributing it.  Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil on broccolini and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.   Place sausage and broccolini back in oven for 10 minutes.
  • After ten minutes remove pan.   Turn on broiler.
  • Place one slice of mozzarella on each broccolini and sausage section.  Return back to oven to broil for 3-5 minutes.
  • Watch carefully and remove before it burns.
  • After removing, top with cherry peppers and remaining olive oil.  Enjoy!
