Bow Ties with Broccoli Rabe & Shrimp
Our local newspaper has a feature every Sunday "Look who's cooking". The have a regular local person who somebody thinks is a great cook and they interview them and publish one of their recipes. Lots of times they suck but every now and then they have a good one. This is what they had this week. I made it tonight and we both enjoyed it.
1/2 cup olive oil
2 pounds broccoli rabe
1/4 cup Fresh Garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 pound bow tie pasta
1 pound shrimp, cooked. defrosted
1 teaspoon lemon juice, fresh
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Locatelli Cheese, freshly grated
1/4 cup Rose or White wine
1.Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large saute pan and add broccoli rabe, garlic and garlic salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 15 minutes.
2.Meanwhile, cook pasta to desired doneness in boiling water. Drain & set aside.
3.Add cooked, defrosted shrimp and wine to vegtable mixture and heat through, about 5 minutes. Add lemon juice, red pepper flakes and pasta and toss well. Top with grated cheese & serve immediately.
The original recipe didn't have the wine in it. I was looking for a little sauce to dip bread into so I added the wine. It was a nice addition, it took the edge off the broccoli rabe.
I hope this isn't negative!
