  1. Cook sausage in large skillet over MEDIUM-HIGH heat 8-10 minutes or until thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently; drain. Return sausage to skillet.
  2. Add broccoli rabe and tomatoes; mix well. Cook over MEDIUM heat 4-5 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender.
  3. Stir in all remaining ingredients. Bring just to a boil, stirring constantly; simmer 4-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is thickened.

Cook’s Tips:

Cellentani or cavatappi pasta is a pasta tube that has been twisted to resemble the shape of a corkscrew. If you don’t have either of these pastas, you can use rotini or fusilli pasta instead.)

For best results, use grated, not shredded, Parmesan cheese. Serve topped with additional grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.)
