Sauté sausage meat until cooked.  Remove from pan.  Pour off fat and add EVOO.  Add rabe and sauté until almost tender.  Add garlic.  Sauté another minute or two.

2)  Toss with pasta.  If this seems too dry for your taste, add chicken broth.  Add cheese.

3)  If you want to go over the top, either of these works well with a little added cream!!
