Directions:

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and broccoli. Cook according to package directions. When pasta is almost done cooking, reserve one cup of pasta water and set aside. Drain pasta and broccoli.

Return pasta pot back to stove and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook garlic for about 1 minute and then add the sausage and pasta/broccoli mixture back into the pot. Mix well. Add cheese, tomatoes, lemon juice, and remaining olive oil. Mix together, mashing any large chunks of broccoli. Add in small amounts of reserved pasta water until it reaches desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
