Broccoli Rabe & Italian Sausage

Image

This is a “side dish” in my house, but could easily be a meal all by itself.  I understand, not everyone likes Broccoli Rabe, but think this combination is a great way to balance and enhance the flavors of both main ingredients!  …AND it’s easy!

What you will need:

  • 8-10 oz of Italian sausage
  • 4 cups Broccoli Rabe (chopped)
  • Olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic (sliced thin)
  • Parmesan (shredded or shaved)
  • Salt & Pepper

How it’s done:

  1. Bring a med/lg pot of heavily salted water to a boil, and blanch the broccoli rabe for 2 min, or until bright green.  Drain well, and set aside.
  2. In a large pan, cook sausage completely.  (If sausage is in casing, remove before cooking) 
  3. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil & garlic to the cooked sausage…cook for 2 more min
  4. Add the blanched broccoli rabe, cook for another 2 min OR until the stalk pieces are just tender.
  5. Remove from heat, add salt and pepper to taste, top with parmesan cheese…and serve!
