Broccoli Rabe & Garlic Pasta Recipe

Standard

This recipe comes from Taste of Home. A delicious recipe for the beginning of summer. I had never cooked with broccoli rabe before, but I really enjoyed cooking with it. Side note- broccoli rabe is a little more bitter than normal broccoli, just so you all know the bitter taste is normal 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb broccoli rabe
  • 12 oz uncooked linguine
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup of chicken broth (if you want to make this vegetarian as well, just use a vegetarian broth)
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

  2. In a large skillet, saute garlic in oil for 1 minute. Add the broccoli rabe, salt, pepper, pepper flakes and 1/2 cup broth. Bring to a boil.

  1. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 3-5 minutes or until broccoli rabe is tender. Drain linguine; add to the pan. Stir in parsley and enough remaining broth to moisten the linguine.
