Gomiti with Broccoli Rabe, Chickpeas, and Prosciutto

Post  justmecookin on Fri Sep 12, 2008 9:11 am

Gomiti with Broccoli Rabe, Chickpeas, and Prosciutto

Ask your butcher or deli manager to give you the end of the prosciutto for this dish. It is much easier to cut into strips and tends to be meatier. Gomiti is similar in shape to elbow macaroni. Grana Padano is a hard cheese that is usually found with Parmesan cheese near the deli section in the grocery store.

6 quarts water
2 teaspoons salt
1 pound uncooked gomiti (short, curled, tube-shaped pasta)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup sliced garlic (about 10 to 12 garlic cloves)
1 (3-ounce) prosciutto end piece, cut into (1/4-inch-wide) julienne strips
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 (16-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
10 cup coarsely chopped broccoli rabe (about 1 [1-pound] bunch)
1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated Grana Padano cheese

Bring 6 quarts water and 2 teaspoons salt to a boil in a large stockpot. Stir in pasta; partially cover, and return to a boil, stirring frequently. Cook 8 minutes or until pasta is almost al dente, stirring occasionally. Drain pasta in a colander over a bowl, reserving 2 cups cooking water.

While pasta cooks, heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add garlic and prosciutto; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add pepper; cook 2 1/2 minutes or until prosciutto is crisp, stirring frequently. Add reserved 2 cups cooking water and chickpeas; bring to a boil.

Add broccoli rabe (do not stir); cover, reduce heat, and simmer 7 minutes or until broccoli rabe is tender. Uncover; simmer 15 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Add pasta, and cook 1 minute or until pasta is al dente, tossing to combine. Remove from heat; stir in cheese. Serve immediately. Makes 6 servings

Post  justmecookin on Fri Sep 12, 2008 10:28 am

Shrimp, Tomato, and Basil Linguine with Warm Goat Cheese Rounds

Most goat cheese is soft and creamy, and ideal for molding into patties and baking. Prepare the goat cheese rounds a day ahead and refrigerate to make this recipe extra easy.

1 (1-ounce) slice white bread
1 (4-ounce) package log-shaped goat cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup coarsely chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 1/2 cups chopped seeded peeled plum tomatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 cups hot cooked linguine (about 12 ounces uncooked pasta)
1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
Basil sprigs (optional)

Preheat oven to 400░. Place bread in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs measure 1/2 cup. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on a baking sheet; bake at 400░ for 2 1/2 minutes or until golden brown.

Transfer to a shallow plate; cool completely. Slice goat cheese crosswise into 4 rounds. Press both sides of each round into breadcrumbs. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet; chill.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sautÚ 5 minutes. Stir in tomato, water, sugar, and pepper; cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add shrimp and salt; cook 4 minutes or until shrimp are done. Remove from heat. Cover; keep warm.

Bake cheese rounds at 400░ for 10 minutes or until soft but still holding their shape. Add pasta and 1/2 cup basil to tomato mixture; toss to combine. Divide pasta mixture evenly among 4 bowls; top each serving with 1 goat cheese round. Garnish with basil sprigs, if desired. Makes 4 servings

Linguine with Caper and Green Olive Sauce

Post  justmecookin on Fri Sep 12, 2008 10:50 am

Linguine with Caper and Green Olive Sauce

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 26-ounce jar marinara sauce
1 6.75-ounce jar Spanish olives, drained and roughly chopped
1 3.5-ounce jar capers, drained and roughly chopped
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 1-pound box linguine

Heat the olive oil, garlic, and crushed red pepper in a large saucepan over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the marinara sauce, olives, capers, parsley, and lemon zest.

Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the linguine according to the package instructions. Drain and add the linguine to the sauce, tossing to coat. Transfer to a large serving dish and serve family-style.
