This dish is perfect for a cold winter night after a crazy long day! Super easy, healthy, and tasty! I serve it with polenta for the perfect Italian meal.

Ingredients:
1 lb sweet Italian chicken sausage, the raw kind
3 lb broccoli rabe, chopped into 3 inch pieces
4 – 6 cloves garlic, minced
Red chili pepper flakes to taste

In a large pot of boiling water cook the broccoli rabe in batches for 2 – 3 min. Place in a colander to drain. Repeat until all the rabe is cooked.

In a 12 inch skillet, cook the chicken sausage, breaking up into small pieces. When cooked add garlic, cook for 1 minute, add rabe, chilli flakes and stir to incorporate with chicken. Cover and cook for 5 minutes to heat through.
