1/2 lb pasta (penne, cavatappi, fusilli, farfalle or shells are all good choices)
1 jar Nello's Sauce
1 bunch Broccoli Rabe, chopped into 2-3 inch segments
1 lb italian ground sausage
4 oz mozzarella cheese ball
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add salt and pasta. Cook until 2 minutes before pasta is al dente and add the broccoli rabe. Enjoy the beautiful green color and wonderful smell of the blanched broccoli rabe! Drain in colander and add to a large 9x12 baking dish.
Meanwhile cook the sausage in a large saute pan until no longer pink, crumbling it with a wooden spoon. Add to the broccoli rabe/pasta mixture in the baking pan. Add the jar of Nello's Sauce and stir well. Top with thin slices of the mozzarella ball.
Bake until mozzarella is bubbling and starting to turn golden around the edges. Enjoy!
