“I have always been a lover of broccoli rabe, having eaten it at my Italian grandmother's house since early childhood. However, I have never really been a sausage fan. Having seen the two ingredients on Italian restaurant menus for quite some time now, I decided to give it a try, and I'm so glad I did. The combination really is very flavorful.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook gnocchi according to package directions, adding broccoli rabe during the last 5 minutes of cooking time; drain, reserving 1/4 cup cooking water.
  2. Meanwhile, in large deep nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook sausage, stirring, until browned, about 10 minutes. Over medium heat, add olives, wine, garlic and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until wine is slightly reduced, 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add gnocchi mixture; cook, stirring, 3 minutes; stir in reserved cooking water and 3/4 cup cheese until combined. Serve sprinkled with remaining 1/4 cup cheese.
