  1. Prepare rigatoni pasta according to package directions. Drain, set aside and keep warm.
  2. In a large, heavy skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic. Brown slightly. Then add sausages; brown well and remove them from the skillet. Next add the broccoli rabe. Stir in white wine, loosening any browned bits of sausage and garlic on the bottom of the skillet (deglaze). Pour in chicken stock and cover. Cook until the broccoli rabe is tender (about 10 minutes).
  3. Return the sausages to the skillet and remove from heat. Season with kosher salt and red pepper flakes. Add rigatoni to the skillet; toss well. Top with grated Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

Good but a little too simple. Also, the broccolini needs way less than 10 minutes to cook. Ours ended up overcooked. I would also suggest throwing in a bit of half & half to the sauce if you have it, to make it more substantial. Next time I would use a little less pasta, to make more of the sauce. You can also throw in a bit of cornstarch to the sauce & some grated parmesan. I like the idea of the recipe but it didn't have enough flavor as written. We liked it but would make changes next time.
