Pasta with Rapini and Ricotta


For the Pasta:

  • 1 pound pasta ( I used Rigatoni)
  • 1 cup fresh ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup fresh, chopped rapini (broccoli rabe)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or whole
  • salt and pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil


Boil pasta in some salted water .

As the pasta is cooking, saute onion and garlic in some olive oil then add rapini and a 1/2 cup of the boiling pasta water, salt and pepper and cook until tender (approx. 5 minutes)

Add cooked pasta to the pan, stir in the ricotta cheese and toss until well mixed.

Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with some fresh grated parmigiano reggiano and serve.
