Ingredients

  • 1 pound broccoli rabe, cut into 2-inch pieces (about 4 cups)
  • 8 ounces uncooked fiori or fusilli pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 leek, rinsed and sliced into half moons

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated pecorino Romano cheese

Preparation

  1. 1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Immerse broccoli rabe in water 1 minute or until bright green. Remove with slotted spoon; place in a towel to keep warm. Cover pot; bring water back to a boil.
  2. 2. Add pasta, and cook 12 minutes or until al dente. Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add olive oil, garlic, and leek. Cook 2–3 minutes or until just golden brown. Season chicken with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Raise heat to high, and add chicken. Cook 2–3 minutes or until well-browned.
