Brown Rice Fusilli With Broccoli Rabe or Greens

Recipe Ingredients for Gluten Free pasta

1 pound broccoli (rabe) (washed in 2 changes of water)
1 Salt to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (to taste)
3/4 pound brown rice (fusilli)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan (or a mix of pecorino and Parmesan)

Recipe Directions for Gluten Free pasta

  1. 1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Trim off the bottoms of the broccoli rabe stems and slice the remaining part of the stems about 1/2 inch thick. When the water comes to a boil, season generously with salt and add the broccoli rabe. Cook for 4 minutes, or until tender, and transfer using a spider or a slotted spoon to a bowl of ice cold water. Let sit for a few minutes and drain. Squeeze out water and chop fine. Set aside the water for the pasta.

  2. 2. Heat the oil over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet and add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook until the garlic smells fragrant, 30 seconds to a minute, and add the broccoli rabe. Toss together for a minute, season to taste with salt, and remove from the heat but keep warm.

  3. 3. Bring the water back to a boil and add the fusilli. Cook al dente, about 9 minutes. Stir 1/2 cup of the pasta water into the greens. Drain and toss the pasta with the greens and cheese. Serve at once.
