Pasta with Broccoli Rabe and Sausage

12 oz. uncooked rigatoni pasta
1 lb. broccoli rabe, ends trimmed, stacked and cut into 1 inch wide pieces
1 lb Italian sausage, casings removed

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add pasta and cook as package directs, adding broccoli rabe 3 minutes before pasta will be done. Drain pasta and broccoli rabe, reserving about 1/4 cup of pasta water; return to pot. While the pasta cooks, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking up into large chunks, 5-7 minutes, until browned and cooked through. Add reserved pasta water. Cook, stirring, 1 minute to loose brown bits on bottom of pan. Pour over pasta mixture in pot; cook, stirring 1 minute to heat and mix. Top with salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese as desired.
