TOTAL TIME: 35 minutes

EASE OF PREPARATION: Easy

EASE OF PREPARATION: Easy


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 pound broccoli rabe, tough stems trimmed (can substitute with just broccoli)
    2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon dried rosemary
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    5 cups vegetable broth, reduced-sodium chicken broth or water
    8 ounces whole-wheat pasta, such as orecchiette, chiocciole (pictured) or penne
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

Directions

1. Cook broccoli rabe in a large pot of boiling water until bright green and still crisp, about 1 minute. Drain and refresh under cold running water. Coarsely chop.

2. Combine oil, garlic, rosemary and crushed red pepper in a large pot; cook, stirring, over medium heat, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add broth (or water) and bring to a boil. Add pasta and the broccoli rabe. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 18 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Serve in shallow bowls, sprinkled with walnuts.
