1.  Steam the broccoli rabe: Put the quart of water into the cooking pot of the Multicooker and insert the steaming rack. Set to Steam for 8 minutes; cover. Once tone sounds, put the broccoli rabe on the rack and cover.

2.  Unit automatically turns off when steaming is complete. Remove and reserve broccoli rabe. Carefully remove water and wipe cooking pot dry. Cooking pot will be hot, so use caution.

3.  Put the olive oil into the cooking pot and set to Brown/Sauté at 350°F. Once hot, cook sausage until well browned on all sides; about 10 to 15 minutes.

4.  Once sausage is browned, add garlic. Sauté until fragrant. Add white wine and allow to cook until almost evaporated. Scrape up any flavorful brown bits that have accumulated in the bottom of the pan. Add chicken broth and red pepper. Simmer for about 5 minutes to blend the flavors.

5. Reduce the temperature to 300°F. Add broccoli rabe and allow to simmer, covered, for an additional 10 minutes.

6. Serve immediately.
