Pasta with Broccoli Rabe, Raisins, and Pine Nuts
Why This Recipe Works
Sautéing the rabe provided a tender-firm bite, but the intensely bitter flavor was off-putting to tasters. Adding a splash of pasta water and chicken broth to the skillet as we sautéed the rabe helped tame the bitterness, and also provided ample flavor. Some Parmesan cheese along with a paste of anchovy fillets, lemon juice, and olive oil rounded out the flavors of our sauce.
