Preparing Broccoli Rabe White Bean’s & Sausages:
Optional ingredients
  1. Wash the great northern beans well, then place the beans into instant pot. Next add seasoning, Italian herbs, chicken base and water. Close lid on instant pot and make sure valve stem is closed, note this is for first generation instant pot. Set to beans for 30 minutes, allowing pressure to come down naturally. This could take around 15 minutes extra time it’s worth the time especially if you’re starting from dry beans not pre-soaked.
  2. Remove the lid of instant pot and stir beans. Drain off any excess cooking liquid, reserving liquid for adjustments to final dish.
  3. In large 12 inch braising pan add oil and garlic, cook until fragrant.
  4. Next add the onions and sweet peppers to braising pan and cook until tender. This could take about 5 minutes on medium high heat.
  5. Now add seasoning, Italian herbs, salt and pepper to the vegetables in braising pan.
  6. Continue by adding cut sausages to vegetables in braising pan. Sir fry on medium high heat until lightly browned.
  7. The next step is to add the cooked northern beans to cooked mixture, stirring well. Continue cooking until beans are simmering.
  8. Now add the cleaned and trimmed broccoli rabe to cooked mixture, pilling all broccoli rabe high. Note it takes a lot of broccoli rabe to make this dish, it will cook down to almost 2/3.
  9. Cover the braising pan and turn down heat to simmer, about medium low. Cook the broccoli rabe and mixture for 7 to 10 minutes.
  10. Remove the lid from braising pan, stir well and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and cooking liquid if needed.
  11. Serve in wide rim bowl placing broccoli rabe in center and vegetables and sausage around the rabe. Garnish with freshly grated Parmesan Cheese.
