  • Step 1

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to the package directions, but 2 minutes before the pasta is done (the very center of the pasta should still be raw) add the broccoli rabe and continue cooking. Drain and set aside.
  • Step 2

    Return the pot to the stove over medium heat; add the oil. Add the sausage and cook until no longer pink, breaking it up as it browns, about 3 minutes.
  • Step 3

    Add the onion to the sausage and cook until softened, about 3 minutes.
  • Step 4

    Add the garlic and crushed red pepper. Cook until the garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Step 5

    Add the chicken broth and bring to a simmer and stir in black pepper.
  • Step 6

    Add the drained pasta and broccoli rabe to the sausage onion sauce and toss until the pasta is coated in the sauce. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
