If you can get broccoli rabe (rapini) try this easy and delicious vegetarian pasta recipe. Even my kids love it!
Awesome!!! This is definitely the recipe to try for rapini-beginners (it was my first attempt to cook with it) - you will be won over! Now I did tweak the recipe a bit by adding a large, diced onion into the mix with the garlic and let it caramelize a bit... the sugary, sticky onion bits are a fantastic complement to the slightly bitter rapini. I also added a healthy splash of cream towards the end (my rapini was starting to look a little dry) which made a nice 'sauce' that covered the pasta and brought the everything together. I know this is a vegetarian dish but next time I will also crumble some bacon bits on top...drooling already.... Thanks for sharing, niki!!! - 18 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Really simple, really yummy! Great way to use rapini. Sounded too simple....but it was excellent. My husband & daughter loved it too! - 01 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I was in a rush, so didn't chop the nuts. Would strongly suggest to do this cause the bites with nuts were 10x better than without. Rapini needed some help to cut the bitterness and this did it. Used extra parm cheese as well. - 11 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
