Orecchiette with Broccoli,Sausage, and Roasted Peppers

4 ounces sweet or hot Italian sausage casings removed ( I prefer it with the sweet)
1 cup Jarred roasted red peppers, rinsed and chopped medium
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 bunch broccoli cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup water
1 pound orecchiette
2 ounces Romano cheese, grated (1 cup)
1 TBS extra virgin olive oil

1- Cook noodle
2- meanwhile, cook the sausage breaking into small pieces until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the roasted red peppers and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 15 seconds.
3-Stir in Broccoli, 1/2 teaspoon salt and water. Increase heat to high,cover skillet, and cook stirring frequently, until the liqui has evaporated and the broccoli is tender about 5 minutes longer.
4-Reserve 1/2 cup of pater cooking water, then drain the orecchiette and return it to the pot. Stir in the sausage, and broccoli mixture, Romano, and oil, and toss to coat. Add the reserved pasta water as needed to loosen the sauce before cooking.
5- serve immediately.
