  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  2. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and cook sausage 10 minutes, or until evenly browned.
  3. Remove sausage from saucepan. Stir garlic into saucepan, and cook approximately 30 seconds. Place broccoli rabe and reserved liquid in the pan, then mix in 1/2 of the lemon juice. Return sausage to pan and allow the mixture to simmer approximately 10 minutes. Mix in remaining olive oil and lemon juice before serving.


Rapini is a slightly bitter cooking green that has long been popular in Italy, also known as broccoli rabe.

Rapini can be substituted with Tenderstem Broccoli as it is easier to get in supermarkets.
