Broccoli rabe resembles tiny clusters of broccoli florets amid bunches of leaves. You can substitute kale or spinach in this recipe and get equally delicious results.
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups chopped broccoli rabe
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups hot cooked orecchiette (about 8 ounces uncooked small ear-shaped pasta)
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded smoked mozzarella or smoked gouda cheese
