In a 10-inch surte pan set on medium heat, cook the oil, garlic, onion and red pepper flakes until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add the broccoli rabe, toss until well coated with the oil, and cook for 3 minutes. Pour in the chicken stock, and tomoto suce and bring to a boil. Prick small holes in the casing of each individual sausage link with a fork and add to the sauce. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover with the lid half-way off, and cook for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid and cook for 15 minutes more. Transfer to a long oval seving dish and bring to the table.
Chef's Tip:
If the souce it too watery because of the water released by the vegetables, remove the sausages once they're cooked through, and reduce the sauce over medium-high heat until it reaches your desired consistency. Return the sausages to the sauce, heat throughand serve.
