Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe & Chickpeas

April/May 2006, EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (162 votes)

The assertive flavors of broccoli rabe and rosemary are paired with sturdy chickpeas in this satisfying pasta dish. When buying broccoli rabe, check to make sure the bottoms of the stems are relatively tight, green and moist. If the broccoli rabe at your store is past its prime—or if you prefer a milder taste—use broccolini or regular broccoli instead. Garnish with a sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

simple, filling and good

ive made this several times, and enjoy it. i think it could be bland without a few adjustments. i use baby broc, and add chicken sausage. i like garbanzo beans, so dont sub them. served with soup, makes a light, but filling, good meal.

Very good, but I recommend regular broccoli (not rabe)

Would be much better with regular broccoli! Broccoli rabe is much to bitter for me!!! Also added kidney beans as other reviewer recommended. That was very good. I highly recommend adding 1 extra clove of garlic, and a little extra rosemary. Also is great when topped with parmesan cheese!

Easy to make, Healthy

I couldn't find broccoli rabe so I just used regular steamed broccoli. I also added kidney beans for extra protein. Very good!
