This dish is so easy, but it will look so impressive at the same time. I love making pasta, and I find the noodle you choose can take any pasta dish to the next level. I always try to have fun when I’m shopping for noodles. I look for something different, a shape I haven’t tried or one that looks like it will absorb the sauce nicely.
Rapini can be very bitter, but if you make it right, it’s amazing. It’s definitely one of my favourite vegetables. Some people blanch it in boiling water for 2-3 minutes before frying. This will help to remove some of the bitterness. I prefer to skip that step to save time, but if you have extra time, it does help tame down the bitterness.
