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.
