This is an excellent recipe. I made it exactly the way your recipe states it should be made and then I added to it 12 cooked sweet Italian pork sausages cut into 4 pieces each and let them all meld together for 5 to 8 minutes while sauteing. This is a real Sicilian dish called Broccoli Rabe and Sausage. Try it you will love it.
