Recipe Ingredients for Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe

24 ounces broccoli rabe, about one bunch
8 ounces pasta, small shape
1/8 tsp. salt
3 tbs. olive oil, plus extra virgin to finish
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 1/2 tbs. Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
1 tbs. lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe

  1. While pasta water is heating, peel the lower stems of the broccoli rabe, then add the whole bunch to the boiling water. Boil for 5 min, then remove it with a strainer and coarsely chop. Start cooking the pasta in boiling salted water.

  2. Meanwhile, warm the oil with the garlic and pepper flakes in a wide skillet over medium heat until fragrant. Add the broccoli rabe and cook gently, occasionally adding a little pasta water to the pan so it doesn't dry out. Drain the pasta, add it directly into the greens, and toss with a spoonful of the extra virgin olive oil, salt to taste, and a little grated Parmesan. Toss well and serve with additional dusting of chees and a wedge of lemon on each plate.
