  • Clean the broccoli rabe by removing the hardest and thickest stems and the larger leaves (you can keep the flowers). Break the greens into pieces and wash well.
  • Boil the orecchiette in 8 quarts of salted water for 6 minutes. Then add the broccoli rabe into the boiling pasta for 6 more minutes before draining.
  • In a frying pan or skillet, heat the olive oil and add the peeled and chopped garlic. Let the garlic soften a little and then add the sliced hot cherry pepper (if you are using it) and the anchovies and stir until the anchovies melt. Keep the heat low so nothing burns.
  • Brown the breadcrumbs (Flora Plain Bread Crumbs) in a separate frying pan with a little olive oil (if you are using them)
  • Add the drained orecchiette and broccoli rabe to the olive oil, garlic and sliced hot cherry pepper
  • Mix everything together well.
  • Serve immediately with a sprinkling of breadcrumbs and/or Flora Grated Parmesan-Romano cheese
