1 lb spaghetti salt and pepper, to taste 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 6 cloves garlic, sliced fine 1 tsp crushed red pepper chili flakes 1/3 cup parsley, minced 1 cup Parmesan cheese 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts 1 bunch broccoli rabe, rinsed and chopped 1/2 cup pasta water, reserved from cooking water
For pasta bring water to a boil and follow package instructions and make sure to salt water. Also make sure pasta is al dente.
Heat a large sauté pan or skillet on medium heat. Add olive oil, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes cook for about 1-2 minutes. Don't over cook garlic (this will leave garlic with a bitter taste).
Next add broccoli rabe and toss together cooking for about 5 minutes until wilted. Next add cooked pasta and pasta water, toss everything together.
Top with Parmesan cheese, pine nuts and parsley.
