Margot in Gnocci with Broccoli Rabe and Sausange, main dish, pasta

I like this dish because its fast, and I can make the Sausage and Rabe and serve it to my “no carb” husband, then mix the just cooked gnocci into the sauté pan with a little of the pasta water for myself.

2 lbs sweet Italian Sausage
1 large bunch Broccoli Rabe, rinsed, ends trimmed, and chopped into ½ inch pieces
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp red pepper flakes (the amount is really up to you.)
1 lbs prepared gnocci (in the cryovac package)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Grated Parmesan Cheese, optional
