Recipe: Pasta with Rapini

14 Mar

You can’t go wrong with this classic combo: nutty pasta, bitter rapini, spicy red pepper flakes and salty cheese.


  • 1/2 package pasta
  • 1 bunch rapini, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green garlic, chopped
  • red pepper flakes, to taste
  • grated parmesan to taste

Boil the pasta according to the directions.  Set your steamer above the pasta water and steam the rapini for about 5 minutes until wilted.  Meanwhile, saute the garlic and red pepper flakes in olive oil.  Add in the rapini and continue to sautee until toasty.  Add in the drained pasta and toss everything together with S&P and more olive oil.  Serve topped with cheese.  Yum!
