Easy and delicious, and definitely interesting flavors. I used red grapes because I had them on hand, but stuck to the recipe otherwise. I had the leftovers for lunch, and I'm on my way to adding this to one of my favorite dishes.
Sautéed Sausage and Grapes with Broccoli Rabe
This is a classic Italian combo—grapes and sausage—paired with pleasantly bitter broccoli rabe to balance the sweetness.
