  • Large oven-safe skillet with lid (or use a large baking sheet as a cover)


  • 1 large bunch broccoli rabe roughly chopped
  • 4 pre-cooked chicken or pork sausages sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 medium yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves smashed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Hot pepper flakes to taste
  • Salt to taste


  • Preheat a large, oven-safe skillet (with a lid) over medium heat until hot. Add olive oil, garlic, onion, salt and hot pepper flakes to taste.
  • Sauté onions and garlic in the preheated skillet for 3-4 minutes until wilted. Add cooked, sliced sausage and toss.
  • Add chopped broccoli rabe to the skillet. Do not toss! Put the lid on and let steam for 5-6 minutes until broccoli rabe starts to wilt and turn bright green. Don’t toss or remove the lid for the full 5 minutes so the steam isn’t released!
  • Toss to combine, and spread out your ingredients in an even layer.
  • Place skillet in a 400-degree oven, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes until sausage and broccoli rabe start to brown and crisp up.
  • Serve as-is, or with one of the delicious ideas from the post above!



  • Buying pre-cooked sausages saves time! If you get raw sausages, boil them in a pot for 20-25 minutes before slicing.
  • Set it and forget it! No need to toss your broccoli rabe and sausage in the oven.
  • Serve your skillet bake alone, or with one or two of these additions!
