I am always hearing people at work talk about how they  stress over thinking of quick and easy weeknight meals. It is a challenge to have your family to sit down for dinner together. Even more so a challenge to find something that everyone will eat. This pasta dish is great because it has your veggies, meat, and something special at the end!

Instructions
  1. Cook Rotini according to package directions. I like to use Barilla tri-color. Then drain the pasta and reserve.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large pan. Remove the sausage from the casing and saute on medium heat. Break up the sausage and brown, about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Add in the garlic and saute for a couple more minutes. No more than 5 minutes.
  4. Next, pour the wine in the pan to deglaze, scraping up any brown bits. Bring it to a simmer.
  5. Add in the broth and bring to a boil. Then throw in the broccoli rabe and simmer covered, for about 4 minutes until tender.
  6. Stir in the butter and Parmesan and cook, uncovered, until the sauce thickens, about 3 minutes.
  7. Toss the pasta with the sausage mixture adding salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Once you have spooned the desired amount into a bowl, top with grated smoked gouda.

  • Dina, this sounds delicious and not too hard! I will try this and tweet you the pic and my review :)
    I know it will be good though! :)

  • Sounds good! Let me know how it goes! Merry Christmas!

  • Could you use regular broccoli instead of the broccoli rabe? I’m not sure if my grocery store had broccoli rabe.

  • You could use broccoli no problem!

  • I finally made a veirson of this. I used what i had on hand so i ended up with green garlic, green onions and Tatsoi instead of the broccoli rabe. I also inadvertantly bought chicken sausage that was already cooked so I sauteed it up in pieces with the casing. Still this was a quick and delicious dinner! I’m having the leftovers for lunch.thanks for your inspiration Jen!
