Serves: 4
  • 1 box Banza Shells
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flake
  • 1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 3 cups roughly chopped broccoli rabe
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  1. Cook pasta in salted boiling water. Reserve 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the starchy cooking liquid.
  2. Heat a large skillet to a medium heat. Add sliced garlic and red pepper flakes, cook for 30 seconds.
  3. Add sausage. Sauté until cooked through and golden brown, breaking up the pieces with a wooden spoon as you go.
  4. Add in broccoli rabe, sauté until bright green and slightly softened, but still has a bite.
  5. Add pasta and salt. Toss together. Add a little bit of starchy cooking liquid to pull the sauce together. Start with a tablespoon or two and then add more to fit your taste.
  6. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
