Orecchiette con le Cime di Rapa (broccoli rabe)
The traditional sauce for this pasta shape is based on broccoli rabe (Cime di Rapa in Italian), which might be bitter for some people. In order to remove the bitterness, you cook the broccoli rabe in the pasta water. I added some lemon juice and zest to the sauce, which also brings a beautiful balance to the dish. Make this pasta for your lovers. They will love it!
