Recipe Ingredients for Whole-Wheat Pasta with Broccolini and Feta

40 grams shallot
10 ounces broccoli
13 radishes
12 ounces rigatoni
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
7 ounces crumbled feta cheese

Recipe Directions for Whole-Wheat Pasta with Broccolini and Feta

  1. Put the shallots in a bowl and cover with cold water. Soak for about 10 minutes; drain.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt it generously. Fill a medium bowl with ice water and salt it as well. Add the broccolini to the boiling water and cook until crisp-tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the radish slices, and cook 30 seconds, more. Use a slotted spoon or strainer to scoop out the vegetables and plunge them immediately into the ice water. Drain the vegetables, pat them very dry.

  3. Add the pasta to the same pot of boiling water, and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 8 to 9 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  4. Whisk the sherry vinegar, orange zest, the 3/4 teaspoon salt and pepper, to taste, in a large serving bowl. Gradually whisk in the oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream, to make a dressing.

  5. Toss the rigatoni, broccolini, radish and shallot with the dressing. Add the feta cheese and toss lightly. Serve warm or room temperature.
