Orecciette alle cime rapa
Instructions
  1. Clean the cime de rapa (broccolini), separate the stems and the flowers. Chop the stems into bite-sized pieces. Remove the thick lower stems and set aside.
  2. Bring a pot of water to the boil, add salt, the chopped stems and flowers. Cook for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the vegetables with a slotted spoon. (DON'T throw the water out!) Now, add the thick lower stems to the water and cook for 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and discard. (These stems have been used only to flavour the cooking water.) Again, keep the water – this will be used to cook the pasta later.
  4. Gently heat a pan, add the oil and, after a few seconds, add the garlic. Add the anchovies and gently grind them until they dissolve completely.
  5. Add the cooked cime di rapa (broccolini) and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  6. Bring the vegetable water to the boil and add the pasta. Boil until cooked.
  7. Drain, and toss with the sauce.
  8. Serve and season by adding optional chilli oil as desired.
