In Puglia, we are inspired to make delicious dishes from seasonal and fresh ingredients- it’s the quintessential Mediterranean way of eating. Growing up, we spent our summers with our Nonna in Pugila, she taught us how to take simple ingredients, and transform them into a rich and decadent plates. Pasta with broccoli rabe, or broccolini, is an easy and flavorful weeknight dinner made with the freshest local ingredients and Le Sorelle’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Follow our recipe below to make this recipe at home:
1 package of fusilli pasta
2 cloves of garlic
2 bunches of broccolini
2 chilli flakes
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Trim broccolini stems and discard any course or damaged leaves.
Bring a pot of water with salt to a boil. Add broccolini to the water and cook for 2-3 minutes.
In a skillet, saute 2 cloves of garlic in olive oil, being mindful not to burn garlic. Remove broccolini from the water, and saute in the olive oil and garlic for approximately 3-5 minutes. Add chili flakes and continue to saute. Set aside.
Bring the same water that was used to cook the broccoli back to a boil. Add pasta and cook as directed.
Drain the pasta and toss with the broccolini. Add parmesan and serve.
