So today was a beautiful day and instead of grilling, I made Orechiette with Broccoli Rabe and ground Pork. I am trying to finish the book of family recipes and thought it might be a good idea to move forward with the project. This is a great dish and when we had it, I always had to have extra. So, you might want to make extra...
Very simple to prepare, just remember it's all about the ingredients.
200 g (7 oz) orechiette
1 bunch of broccoli rabe
400 g (14 oz) ground pork, you can use sausages, but remove them from the casing
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Clean the broccoli rate, blanch it and sauté with garlic and olive oil.
Cook the ground pork in a small amount of olive oil.
In a large pot of boiling water, add the pasta and cook till al dente. When pasta is done, drain and combine the pasta with the cooked ground pork and broccoli rabe. Grate a generous amount of Parmigiano over the top.
