Finally enough broccoli rabe to make this recipe. Let me say this. IT WAS EASY. Way easy. Especially YUMMY. Now this was spicy. If you are not into spicy, then you may want to reduce or leave out the red pepper flakes.
Broccoli Rabe and Garlic Pasta
12 oz uncooked whole week linguine
1 lb broccoli rabe
3 garlic cloves minced
2 tblspns olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup chicken broth ( I used vegetable broth)
1/4 cup parsley
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Cook linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile trim 1/4 inch from the broccoli rabe stems, discard coarse outer leaves. Rinse broccoli rabe in cold water and cut into 2 inch pieces; set aside. In a large skillet saute garlic in oil for 1 minute. Add the broccoli rabe, salt, pepper and pepper flakes and 1/2 cup of the broth. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat cover and cook for 3-5 minutes or until broccoli rabe is tender. Drain linguine, add to the pan. stir in parsley and enough of the broth to moisten linguine. Sprinkle with Cheese.
