The inspiration for this recipe is the famous Italian dish, Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe. This one is without garlic, but I’m sure you can try with it and see how your baby likes it. You can also try it with any hard cheese on hand. This time I added a bit of lemon zest and found that it really livened the dish up.
– 2.5 cups chopped broccoli florets
– 1 cup small seashell pasta
– salt and crushed red pepper flakes to taste
– 1 tbsp lemon zest
– 1 cup shredded cheese, plus more for garnish
Bring a medium pot of salted water to boil. Add broccoli and pasta. Cook until al dente. Drain. Toss with lemon zest and cheese. You can also add a little bit of olive oil or butter if you like. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with more shredded cheese on top.
