Sausage and Broccoli Rabe

I made this super easy meal using my homemade Italian sausage. It's ridiculously easy and the broccoli rabe adds a nice mild bitter flavor that marries well with the sausage. You can use your favorite bulk sausage with this recipe; and don't forget to serve nice crusty bread on the side to sop it all up.

INGREDIENTS (serves 4)

  • 1 large bundle broccoli rabe, about 1 1/4-1 1/2 pounds
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound bulk Italian hot or sweet sausage

Trim ends of the broccoli rabe and cut into 3-inch pieces. Bring 2 inches water to a boil in a high sided skillet. Salt the water. Add the broccoli rabe and simmer 10 minutes, drain. Return skillet to the stove and heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage, brown and crumble 6-7 minutes. Add the broccoli rabe and stir to combine.
