Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Blanch broccoli rabe for 1 minute, then remove with tongs, and rinse with cold water to cool. Add pasta to the boiling water and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water.

  • Meanwhile, brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the sausage has nearly cooked through, drain the excess grease, and stir in garlic and shallot. Cook until the shallots soften and turn translucent, about 5 minutes. Add broccoli rabe, artichokes and roasted peppers, cook for 1 to 2 minutes to warm. Stir in the hot pasta along with Parmesan cheese, and enough pasta water to moisten.

In my small towns they never heard of broccoli rabe. So I used broccoli. The flavors of this dish are wonderful - the richness of the artichoke with the slight sweetness of the roasted red peppers and the saltiness of the sausage... very nice. The broccoli gives it a nice contrasting color too making it very pretty. It helps too that I could serve it in one of my favorite pottery dishes. The only difference I made besides the broccoli rabe was I used fresh Romano cheese as that is what I have open. My husband and son gave it a four but I give it the full five! I will definitely make this again - especially when I have guests over. It's pretty simple and delicious! Read More

We used regular broccoli instead of the rabe and regular white onions sauteed instead of the shallots (just had to use what I had). It was great! It was a nice change from the regular old thing. Many recipes are boring and I find I have to play with recipes to make them more interesting. Not with this recipe though the spicy sausage and other ingredients are all you need for full flavor.

We all really enjoyed this recipe. I used regular broccoli one fresh red pepper that I sauteed (in butter) before adding pre-cooked link style hot Italian sausage. I also used tri-colored spiral pasta since that was all I had. It was nice having a pasta that wasn't heavy on seasonings or sauce but still had a great flavor. Read More

With all the ingredients listed you would think that this pasta is very heavy. Everything blended together perfectly; not too heavy of a meal and not too light. I personally made only half the amount of farfalle pasta listed. Perfect dinner with a delicious taste! I highly recommend this recipe! Read More

Wonderful flavors. This was the first time I have ever had broccoli rabe - it was quite expensive and it must be an aquired taste. It was ok - - -. But the rest of the dish was wonderful! Read More

I made this the other night and my husband and I totally enjoyed it. I used our favorite Italian link sausage and just removed it from the cassing for the browning of it. We love marinated artichokes so I used a very large jar. That was the only thing I did differently than the receipe stated. I will make it again and will diffinately serve it for when we have company over. Thanks so much yankeesfan. mbj Read More
