Sauteed Rapini and Nino's Italian Sausage
Serves 4
VERY Italian! This recipe is simple but quite delicious. If you wish, additional ingredients can be added to increase the interest. Try addiing blanched and sauteed fennel, onions, carrots, tomatoes or peppers during the Rapini saute step. In addition, this dish can be finished with a hard grating cheese like Romano or Parmesan. Asiago cheese is also wonderful.
