  • 1 pound broccoli rabe
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces hot Italian sausage—casings removed, meat crumbled
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup grated pecorino cheese

How to make this recipe

  1. In a pot of salted boiling water, cook the broccoli rabe until nearly tender, 4 minutes. Drain and cool under cold water. Squeeze and pat dry, then chop.

  2. In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the sausage and cook over moderately high heat, breaking it up into small pieces, until browned. Add 3 more tablespoons of oil, the garlic and red pepper to the skillet and cook for 1 minute. Add the broccoli rabe and cook, stirring, until tender, 3 minutes. Season with salt. Add the lemon juice and toss. Serve with pecorino.
