Today we made Italian Sausage and Broccoli Rabe Fusilli using our Cucina Antica Imported Italian Fusilli. Check out the recipe below, and have fun cooking one of the world's most favorite foods. 

Ingredients:

½ cup olive oil

8 ounces spicy Italian sausage

12 ounces Cucina Antica Fusilli

Salt

3 cups broccoli rabe, chopped

2/4 cup grated parmigiano-reggiano

Freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Preparation:

Cook Italian sausage in a saucepan over medium-high heat. In a separate saucepan, add the olive oil and cook broccoli rabe over medium-high heat. Remove broccoli rabe and set aside. Add the butter to the saucepan until it is a light brown color, and transfer broccoli rabe back into the saucepan. 

Remove the Italian sausage and chop into small bits. Add the sausage to the saucepan with the broccoli rabe.

Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until just shy of al dente. Using a ladle, transfer the fusilli into the sauce pan along with ¼ cup pasta cooking liquid and mix until the fusilli is covered in the sauce. 

Remove and serve with Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Buon Appetito!
