“Delicious in the spring, cut rapini before it flowers for tender greenery. Absolutely delicious and very easily adaptable for whatever's growing in your garden.” - by sophie
Original recipe yields 2 servings
- Fill a saucepan with enough water to cover the broccoli rabe, sprinkle in some salt, and bring the salted water to a boil. Stir in the broccoli rabe, and cook until bright green and just starting to become tender, about 2 minutes; drain the rabe, and cool in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain well, and pat dry with paper towels.
- Fill a pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the fusilli, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
- While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir the 2 roughly-chopped garlic cloves until they start to turn translucent, about 2 minutes; sprinkle with salt and black pepper, and stir in rosemary sprig, dried Italian herb mix, and crushed red pepper flakes.
- Stir in the blanched rabe, white wine, and tomatoes; remove rosemary sprig, and bring the mixture to a boil. Mix in the cooked fusilli pasta, green onions, and 1 minced clove of garlic; simmer for 1 more minute, and serve topped with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

"This was better than I was expecting! We didn't have broccoli rabe at our store, so I used baby broccoli instead - not sure how much that affected the flavor of the dish (which was really good!!) or t..." See morehe veggie-to-pasta ratio. I will probably increase the amount of pasta when I make it again, but overall it is a very good dish with great flavor that goes well with some warm, crusty bread for sopping up the juice - YUM!!"
