  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe tough stems removed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 12 oz pasta
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 package precooked sausage
  • 8 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • grated parm for sauce and serving


  • Cook pasta according to instructions. While cooking prepare the ingredients.
  • Heat oil in a small frying pan and fry the garlic slices over medium low until the barely start to brown. This takes a few minutes. Don't use higher heat as they will burn and not taste good. Remove garlic from the oil but keep oil in the pan.
  • Cut sausage into pieces and brown it the garlic oil. Stir in the broccoli rabe and let cook for a minute. Add the chicken broth, garlic, red pepper flakes and allow to simmer until the broccoli rabe is bright green.
  • Add the drained pasta and add a little grated parm to the broth and gently mix.
  • Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed. Top with plenty of grated parm and serve.
