    Directions

    1. Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted water al a dente according to package directions. Drain the pasta and keep warm. Reserve one to two cups of pasta water.
    2. In the meantime, brown the sausage (if you want meat in your recipe) in a grill or frying pan and cook for about 10 minutes or until cooked through. Set the sausage aside.
    3. In a large pot, heat the olive oil on medium heat and add the garlic, sun dried tomatoes and broccoli rabe. Cook for a few minutes or until the broccoli rabe is wilted. Add the wine, vinegar, tomato paste and sugar. Simmer on low for about 10 minutes until the veggies are cooked and the sauce thickens.
    4. Add the pasta to the pot along with the beans and dried basil. Add one to two cups of the pasta water, stir and cook on low until everything is well blended.
    5. Mix the cooked sausage into a big bowl with the desired amount of pasta depending on how many meat eaters you have. Use another bowl for the pasta without sausage. Add salt and crushed red pepper to taste. Serve with grated Italian cheese.
