The peppery bite of broccoli rabe mellows when joined by Parmesan, pine nuts, and red-pepper flakes. Plus, you get a solid serving of vegetables in a comforting bowl of pasta. You could also stir this pesto into lentils and sprinkle the dish with crumbled fresh goat cheese.
Broiling is one of the easiest ways to cook broccoli rabe: The stalks turn bright green and tender and the leaves get nice and crispy. Serve this rich, zesty combo as a warm salad or over pasta for an even heartier dish.
