Broccoli Rabe with Sausage

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe has been in my family for a long time. It works really great as a side dish or as a main dish if served with pasta (I like to use either gemelli or cavatelli). The chicken broth takes a lot of the bitterness out of the broccoli rabe. Top with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired."
