Happy Birthday Jodie Foster!

Jodie Foster shared her recipe for Penne with Broccoli Rabe with Time-Life for its book, In the Kitchen with Miss Piggy. Enjoy!

Penne with Broccoli Rabe

1 pound penne

1 pound broccoli rabe, halved crosswise

2 to 3 Tbsp. olive oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

In a large pot of boiling water, cook the pasta until al dente, according to package directions. About 5 minutes before the pasta is done, add the broccoli rabe to the boiling water and cook until crisp-tender.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until it is lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Drain the pasta and broccoli rabe and put in a large serving bowl. Add the garlic mixture, Parmesan, and red pepper flakes. Toss to combine.
