1.Fill the Cuisinart® GreenGourmet® Electric 14-inch Skillet with 1 inch of water and add 1 tablespoon of kosher salt. Turn temperature to 450°F, cover, and bring to a boil.
2.Set up a large bowl filled with ice water. Trim ends of broccoli rabe and cut into 2-inch pieces. Once water comes to a boil, add broccoli rabe to Skillet and cover. Cook for about 2 to 4 minutes. Plunge blanched broccoli rabe into prepared ice water. Once cool, discard ice water and reserve broccoli rabe.
3.Turn off Skillet, remove water and wipe Skillet dry. Turn temperature to 350°F and add the olive oil. Brown sausages on all sides, about 3 minutes per side.
