If there is skin on the sausage, remove it and fry sausage in a skillet over medium heat until no longer pink, drain, remove, and set aside keeping it warm.
Cook the garlic in olive oil in same skillet until golden.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta to al dente according to package instructions but add the broccoli three minutes before the end of the cooking time. Drain broccoli with the pasta.
Toss the sausage, olive oil, garlic, penne, broccoli, and Parmesan in a large serving bowl. Sprinkle with Parmesan set aside for garnish, then the red pepper flakes and serve.

Thank you for commenting, Mary Moo, and I am so glad you and your family enjoyed it so much!
I made this for dinner last night and I gotta tell you it's pretty darn good! I used mild Italian sausage and we all loved it! I made a double batch so I could bring for lunch at work today. Thanks for posting!
