Although we recommend broccoli rabe as a nice winter green, this recipe will work equally well with your favorite dark leafy greens. Chard, kale, spinach—they all work with the simple, flavorful spices of this easy, veggie-heavy weeknight meal for all seasons.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 tablespoon dried red chili flakes
- 2 medium cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 1 bunch broccoli rabe, trimmed and chopped
- 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 3 cups whole grain penne
- 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons Pecorino-Romano cheese, grated
- Heat the oil in a skillet until shimmering. Add the shallots, salt and chili flakes and cook until softened. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant.
- Add half the broth and broccoli rabe and stir until the rabe wilts. Add the rest of the rabe and broth and cook down.
- Stir in the pasta. Bring to boil, then reduce to a simmer. Allow to cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the pasta is cooked. Stir in the lemon juice and garnish lightly with cheese.
