  1. Step 1

    Cook the spaghetti in a saucepan of boiling water following packet directions or until al dente. Add the broccoli in the last 2 mins of cooking. Drain well, reserving ½ cup (125ml) of cooking liquid. Return the spaghetti to the pan.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, process the basil, almonds, parmesan, garlic and half the rocket in a food processor until finely chopped. With the motor running, gradually add the oil in a thin, steady stream. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Step 3

    Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add the sausages and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, for 4 mins or until brown all over. Add the tomatoes and cook, tossing, for 2 mins or until tomatoes begin to soften.
  4. Step 4

    Add the sausage mixture, remaining rocket and pesto to the spaghetti and toss to combine. Divide among serving bowls. Top with extra parmesan.
