i stopped at the store last night to pick up a few things, mainly the last few ingredients for tomato soup (more on that later). but they had broccoli rabe again. i LOVE broccoli rabe, mostly on my pizza. but, omg, this recipe for pasta with garlicky broccoli rabe by smitten kitchen is now in regular rotation. i rarely make pasta for myself, but there something so deliciously addicting about the broccoli/garlic/red pepper flake combination i found myself throwing caution to the wind and whipping up and entire pound (insert gasp of horror!) of pasta last night.
plus it was, like, lightening fast to make. i raced against the clock to get it done before yoga and i
smelled like garlic made it! with enough time to spare to eat an entire bowl of it oops.
now the rest is packaged up for lunch and sitting in freezer to grab and go over the next few weeks. yes i have some self control when it comes to consuming a pound of pasta.
anyway, i think this is a crowd pleaser and just the thing to whip up for the neighbors for dinner or for when the entire fam is together. it's quick, painless and delicious and not that bad for you. (i cut back on the oil, cheese and salt.)
make it this weekend, let me know what you think! bon appetit!
