About this recipe: Orecchiette with broccoli raab is the iconic dish of the Italian region of Puglia. It's a recipe full of flavours and textures: the bitter-sweet broccoli raab, the salty anchovies, the crunchy breadcrumbs and the spicy chilli. Pasta is cooked in the same water as the broccoli raab, so it gets all the flavour. When it's not broccoli raab season, try it with broccoli or cauliflower.
If using fresh pasta, it will take no longer than 4 to 5 minutes. So, you might need to add the pasta along with the broccoli raab tips, 4 to 5 minutes before the end.
