  • 1 lb medium pasta (I use Rotelle, but a lot of people use orrechiette
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 2 Bunches of broccoli rabe, also known as rapini- Cut most of stems off of broccoli rabe and coarsely chop.

  • 5 to 6 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • Lemon juice and/or lemon zest
  • 1 can (approx. 17 oz) of College Inn Chicken Broth or Chicken Stock

Step 1

While pasta water is boiling, sauté sausage in 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil in large sauté pan until crumbled and brown. Remove sausage and set aside.
Add rest of olive oil (1 - 2 tablespoons) to the pan, red pepper flakes, and sauté garlic until lightly browned.
Add broccoli rabe and stir so it is all coated with olive oil and garlic - approximately 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper and a little lemon juice and/or lemon zest.
Add sausage back to pan, and then add chicken broth.
When pasta is cooked, drain and add to sauté pan, Mix well with broccoli rabe and sausage and broth - 2 minutes
