It's nearly impossible for YJDKIY to find blog time lately! I feel like I've been robbed of time, wait, make that rabbed!

We had fresh broccoli rabe, or rapini, from our Winter Harvest basket this week. I've seen it in the store lots, but never purchased it, so this was a cooking first. Chopp off the woody ends and blanch for a couple of minutes, drain, and rinse with cold water.

Meanwhile boil pasta as directed. Heat EVOO and add greens and a can of white beans, some crumbled (fakin') bakin bits, and cook 3-4 more minutes.

Mix in the pasta and serve!

As for the new green, it was definitely a keeper. The flavor is like broccoli but the texture is more like kale. Win-win!
