    Yummo!!! Everything worked! This was made with my homemade turkey sausage. I do not grind the meat, I add my own spices, Italian, smoked paprika, etc. I have purchased my poultry at the same stall for years their mixed meat ground turkey is the best!!raf

    I couldn't find broccoli rabe when I wanted to make this so just used broccoli and it was delicious. I estimated the amount of broccoli to use and ended up with a large amount of pesto, so my whole dish turned quite green with the pesto mixed in, but it was a big hit with my husband, and I will definitely make it again. The mild, delicate taste of the pesto was a perfect compliment to the spicy turkey sausage.
