Bringing you the flavors of Puglia through imported foods and olive oil, & exclusive getaways.

Puglia is a magical place. As the "heel" of Italy's boot,  a peninsula within a peninsula, it is a place where travelers must choose to go. Off the beaten path, trains traversing Italy North to South end their journey here, even the last cobblestones of the ancient Roman Via Appia are laid here.

Thick olive groves, rocky soils, and sea waters on three sides have created a land of unique culture, language, and history. Puglia harbors Italy's best olive oil, ancient vineyards, and some of the best culinary traditions Italy has to offer.  Italians are well acquainted with this "secret", but outside travelers rarely journey to this southern corner of Italy.

We are two sisters with family roots in Puglia. Our mother was born here and so was her mother and her mother. Our family's roots in Puglia are as deep as those of the centuries old olive trees. We have come to appreciate the many gifts Puglia has to offer - from food and wine to its ancient customs. Our mission is to share these with you, to bring you into the fold of Pugliese hospitality so that you too may experience the treasures of this ancient land.

Pasta with Broccoli Rabe

Le Sorelle

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:

Ingredients:

1 package of fusilli pasta

2 cloves of garlic

2 bunches of broccolini

2 chilli flakes

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Parmesan

Instructions:

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.

Buon Appetito!
