Sausage and Broccoli Rabe Angel Hair Pasta

Sausage & Broccoli Rabe Angel Hair Pasta

This is one of our favorite dishes. We don't miss a heavy sauce since the broccoli, garlic and sausage are so flavorful.

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound sweet italian sausage, casings removed
  • 5 garlic cloves- minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 pound angel hair pasta
  • 1 bunch of broccoli rabe
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
Pan fry sausage for about 8 minutes while breaking into small pieces.  Add garlic and red pepper flakes and fry for about a minute.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Add broccoli towards the end and cook for about 3 minutes. Drain and add to the sausage mixture.  Toss with cheese, oil, salt and pepper & serve.
