Broccoli Rabe with Sausage and Parmesan

Broccoli Rabe with Sausage and Parmesan

We love A Dozen Cousins’ Cuban Black Beans! These flavor-packed beans are paired with savory chorizo, peppers and onions for a complete side dish in minutes.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.
