Directions

  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and return it to the pot.

  4. Add the broth and red pepper and bring to a boil. Add the broccoli rabe and simmer, covered, until tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Stir in the butter and Parmesan and cook, uncovered, until the sauce thickens slightly, 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. Toss the pasta with the sausage mixture and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.

Radicchio
For a milder alternative to bitter broccoli rabe, opt for broccoli or Swiss chard. For a more peppery bite, try arugula or radicchio.

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
