When you scale a recipe, keep in mind that cooking times and temperatures, pan sizes and seasonings may be affected, so adjust accordingly. Also, amounts listed in the directions will not reflect the changes made to ingredient amounts.

Tested size: 4 servings

  • 1 pound broccoli rabe, tough ends trimmed, coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound seedless red grapes, stemmed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea or table salt
  • 8 fresh Italian sausages, preferably with fennel seed


Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat 375 degrees.

Spread the broccoli rabe and grapes on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with the salt, then use your clean hands to toss and coat evenly; make sure they are arranged in a single layer. Arrange the sausages on top, with plenty of room between them.

Roast for about 30 minutes, turning the sausages over and giving the broccoli rabe and grapes a stir halfway through, until the broccoli rabe is tender, the grapes are nearly jammy and the sausages are cooked through and browned.

Serve hot, straight from the pan.
