What you’ll need:
1 box rigatoni
1 bushel of broccoli rabe
1 package of hot turkey sausage (or you can use sweet or a combo)
3 cloves garlic, chopped
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Boil the water for the pasta. Cook according to directions.
Clean the broccoli rabe.
Brown the turkey sausage in a frying pan or on the grill.
Remove sausage from pan and let rest before cutting into pieces.
Place garlic in pan.
Rough chop the broccoli rabe and sauté with the garlic and olive oil. (I go three times around the pan with the EVOO for the sauté).
Cook until the leaves get a deep green and the stems are tender.
When the rigatoni is cooked, slice the turkey sausage and add to the rigatoni and broccoli rabe. Mix together well, as the broccoli rabe has a tendency to stick together.
Add salt and parmigiano reggiano taste. Enjoy...and don't forget the Italian bread!
