Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Pasta

This Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Pasta is the perfect light Italian-style dish that comes together in no time! 

Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Pasta

When I received Ali’s newest cookbook, Inspiralize Everything, in the mail, I was immediately so excited. Ali has created an awesome online resource for all things spiralized, she has her first cookbook which was fabulous, so I knew I would just love her second book! 

Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Pasta

This book is beyond gorgeous and packed with so many recipes all categorized by various vegetables. I can’t wait to make the Turkey, Spinach, and Hummus Roll Ups as a snack, and the Winter Lasagna with Butternut Squash, to name a few!

Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Pasta

I have been eying the Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Parsnip pasta, but I had summer squash from the farm leftover, so I decided to spiralize it and sub that in, and man was it delicious! I love light Italian meals that are flavorful but not super heavy!

Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Parsnip Pasta

Prep Time 15 min Cook Time 15 min Total Time 0:30

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe
  • 2 hot Italian sausage links, casings removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 parsnips, peeled, spiralized with blade d, noodles trimmed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  • Rinse the broccoli rabe and pat dry. Cut off most of the stems (the thickest parts). Using a vegetable peeler, pull some skin off the stems, and continue to until you hit the leaves. Chop into 1-inch pieces and set aside.
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat. When water flicked onto the skillet sizzles, add the sausage and oregano and cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Using tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to a plate.
  • Immediately add the broccoli rabe, parsnip noodles, garlic, and red pepper flakes to the skillet. Season with salt and black pepper, then add the broth. Cook until the broth has reduced and the parsnip noodles are al dente, about 5 minutes.
  • Return the sausage to the skillet, add the cheese, and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and toss the ingredients to combine fully.
  • Divide among four plates, garnish with the parsley, and serve.
  • Recipe Notes

  • 1. I used 1 large summer squash instead of parsnips, so I omitted the chicken broth step!
  • 2. If you don’t like the bitterness of broccoli rabe, try parboiling it after trimming. Bring a large pot filled halfway with water to a boil, add the broccoli rabe, cook for 3 minutes, then transfer to a bowl of ice water. Otherwise, broccolini or plain broccoli are great choices with similar textures.

      Easy Scallop Pasta

      Good moooorning!

      This year I joined a local CSA and cannot believe it has taken me this long to get involved in one. So many of you ask how to shop and eat clean on a budget, and I highly recommend joining a local CSA to help with your shopping. For the money we spent for the 20 weeks, the amount of produce we get weekly is AMAZING. I am making all the fresh veggies with dinner. And lunch. And breakfast!

      Like this delicious summer squash pasta.

      Probably one of the easiest, most delicious, light dinners around.

      Perfect for SUMMER!

      Creamy Pesto Chicken "Pasta"

      This weekend was kind of relaxed. We laid low and managed to have a fun-filled day of registering *gasps* for our wedding!  We binge-watched The Jinx (a new HBO Documentary short series), and I met my girlfriends for brunch yesterday.  A nice relaxing weekend for busy week ahead! Cooking for Passover, heading to NY, taking care of wedding stuff, blog work, gym time, and so much more. Busy busy busy. That’s why I need to fuel up with dinners like this.

      Protein, good-for-you fats… the works!

      Creamy ‘Pasta’ Alla Vodka

      So… March is here!! I think I can speak for all of us when I say I am ready to say good-bye to the Winter and welcome Spring with open arms (and pray that the cold is past us and that I didn’t just jinx it). 

      You’re going to love this Vodka Sauce. Serve it over zucchini linguine and watch it quickly become a staple in your house. A dairy-free creamy vodka sauce loaded with crispy prosciutto, shallots, basil, and garlic. It is heaven.

      Creamy 'Pasta' Alla Vodka

      My blogging girlfriends and I are back with another collaborative post for you! This month it is all about the SPIRALIZER aka spiraled veggies turned into healthy spiralized meals! There are a few reasons why I love the spiralizer. One because it makes the perfect alternative for linguine/noodles, and two because you can literally spiralize SO. MANY. VEGGIES. 

      It’s amazing. Really.

The rich creamy sauce over pasta. Nothing better! I bring you a dairy-free creamy vodka sauce loaded with crispy prosciutto, shallots, basil, and garlic. Mike asked tonight if we can have it again for dinner tomorrow! Serve it over zucchini linguine for the perfect dinner!
