broccoli rabe, washed and stemmed
Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 large cloves
medium white onion, diced
(or more) hot red pepper flakes
Fine sea salt to taste
Coarsely ground black pepper to taste
Grated Pecorino Romano cheese for sprinkling
Cook the broccoli rabe uncovered in 4 cups of salted, boiling, water for 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander. Coarsely chop the broccoli and set aside.
In a skillet, heat the olive oil. Sauté the garlic, onions, and pancetta together over medium heat, until the pancetta starts to brown. Add the broccoli rape, hot red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook the mixture, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes. Set aside and keep warm while the pasta cooks.
Serve over orecchiette or other chunky pasta. Pass the grated cheese for sprinkling after each person is served
