Mushrooms with Rapini and Chicken Sausage

Before switching to paleo, one of my favourite dishes was Orechiette (pasta that looks like little ears) with Rapini and Chicken Sausage. Also loved it on pizza! Here is a quick recipe share. Enjoy!

Mushrooms with Rapini and Chicken Sausage

  • 2 tbsp avocado oil (or oil of choice), separated
  • 1 lb cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb chicken sausage
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1  bunch of rapini, stems removed and cut into thirds
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2-3 tsp fresh or dried parsley
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (or more, if you like the heat)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Bring a medium sized pot of water to a boil and steam rapini for approx. 4 minutes, then place in colander to drank. (Alternatively, you could blanch and drain)
  2. In a shallow pan, heat 1 tbsp of avocado oil and cook mushrooms for 5 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In the same shallow pan, place chicken sausage, parsley, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper and cook well – break apart sausage while cooking. Once cooked, set aside.
  4. Again, in the same pan, heat the remaining 1 tbsp of avocado oil and sauté chopped garlic until fragrant.
  5. Place rapini back in the pan and mix with garlic and oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Return chicken sausage and mushrooms to the pan and mix well.
  7. Enjoy 🙂
