Prep Time: 7 Minutes
Cooking Time: 18 Minutes

1 bunch (about 1 lb) broccoli rabe or Broccolini, cut into 3" lengths
8 oz whole wheat penne
4 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb med uncooked shrimp, peeled & deveined
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 to 1/2 tsp red-pepper flakes

well I sort of made it tonight. I substituted scallops for shrimp and asparagus for broccoli rabe but stuck with the rest and it was a nice light dinner. Thanks!!

This was super yum... used regular broccoli and it tasted great. I accidentally dropped in WAY too many red pepper flakes, so it was super spicy.... but was still great! Thanks

Edit: I just made this again, and I only had a little broccoli left, so I put some green beans in (cooked with the little broccoli I had)... num!!!!
