BENEFITING: LESS CANCER

ORGANIZER: LESS CANCER

THE STORY:

Broccoli Rabe & Pasta

My wonderful "Uncle" Vincenzo who showed me how he does his Broccoli Rabe says that no self-respecting Italian will eat broccoli rabe any time of year but winter, when it is most in season - I love this dish so much, I make it whenever the broccoli looks good enough to me.

1 Large bunch Broccoli Rabe, trimmed of the heaviest part of the stalk, and chopped very coarsely

3 - 5 cloves Garlic, crushed

1 pound whole grain pasta - any short pasta you prefer, such as penne or bow-tie.

1/3 Cup Olive Oil

You favorite coarse salt - Sea Salt, Kosher, whatever

Crushed Red Pepper flakes

Good quality freshly grated Parmesan or Romano


Prepare the pasta per directions on the box.

Heat the Olive Oil in a Large stock pot on very low heat.  
Add crushed Garlic and saute gently. 

Add Broccoli Rabe and toss well.  Continue cooking until boccoli is tender and a brilliant green - about five minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper flakes.

Drain pasta but don't rinse.  Add pasta to the broccoli and toss well.  
Finish with just a bit of grated cheese.
  
ALSO!  great if you throw in some simply cooked shrimp or chicken.
