  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the pasta and cook for 15 mins. Add the broccoli in the final 5 mins of cooking. Drain and return to the pan. 
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan, add the sausage chunks and fry for 10 mins, tossing occasionally, until golden. 
  3. Add the milk to the pan of drained pasta and beat vigorously to break down the broccoli, creating a creamy sauce. Mix through the sausage and most of the cheese, then divide between 2 plates. Serve topped with the remining cheese and a grind of black pepper.
