Fusilli With Rapini (Broccoli Rabe), Garlic, And Tomato Wine Sauce

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.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ cup uncooked fusilli pasta
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary (Optional)
  • ½ teaspoon dried Italian herb mix, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
