This delicious and hearty pasta comes with the easiest, light sauce. See my tips in the post for migraine-friendly ingredients.
Boil pasta in salted water according to package directions, drain, but keep about 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Rough chop washed broccoli rabe into bite size pieces.
In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium. Add sausage and stir till cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside. In the same pan, add another tablespoon of olive oil and garlic and saute for about 30 seconds. Then add chopped broccoli rabe and season with a pinch of kosher salt. Cook for about 2 minutes till wilted down.
Add 1 cup of broth and bring to a simmer for about 2 minutes then add your pasta. Adding the pasta should help thicken the sauce a bit to coat the little bowls. If you like more sauce, a tablespoon or two of the pasta water until it meets your expectations. Taste and adjust any seasonings. Top with goat cheese (or mix in while warm) if desired.
