Pasta with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe
Pasta served with sausage, broccoli rabe, toasted garlic, red pepper flakes, and parmesan
- 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.
