La Dolce Pasta
On Sunday I was organizing some recipes I had cut out of magazines and came across this pasta dish. I was particularly excited because I had exactly a 1/2 pound of hot Italian sausage in the freezer, 1 box of campanelle pasta in the cabinet, and a jar of marinara sauce and grated Parmesan and Romano in the refrigerator. All I needed to get was the broccoli rabe!
The pasta was a delicious use of some leftover ingredients! Tim and I both loved it!
Pasta with Sausage & Rapini
Adapted from a recipe published in InStyle Magazine

- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package directions. Add broccoli rabe during last 3 minutes of cooking, drain.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, cook 2 to 3 minutes or until onion starts to soften. Add sausage, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Add cooked pasta and broccoli rabe to skillet, tossing until combined. Stir in marinara sauce. Cook 1 minute or until heated through.
