  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 25 mins

Yield: Serves about 4


  • 1lb ground sausage of choice
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons avocado or olive oil
  • 1 large bunch broccoli rabe (trim about 2 inches from the bottom)
  • 10 ounces gluten-free pasta
  • 15-ounce can cannelloni beans, rinse well from can
  • 1 cup bone broth or vegetable broth
  • Red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese for topping


  1. In a large skillet, cook the ground sausage on medium heat for about 5-7 minutes or until fully cooked
  2. Remove sausage from skillet (I put mine on a paper towel lined plate/bowl to absorb the excess oil/fat)
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the broccoli rabe in the pot for about 5 minutes as you cook onion and garlic
  4. Add the oil, onion and garlic to the skillet from the pork and cook on medium high heat as the broccoli rabe cooks
  5. After 5 minutes of the broccoli rabe boiling in water, remove and add directly to the skillet with onions and garlic and cook for about 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally
  6. As that cooks, boil fresh water in the pot and cook pasta per instructions on package
  7. Add the bone broth, cooked pork and beans to the skillet and simmer for a few minutes
  8. Add in the strained pasta to the skillet and mix well
  9. Serve while warm and sprinkle some red pepper flakes, fresh squeeze of lemon juice and cheeses on top and enjoy!
