And others, like us, like it wicked hot. Enter our Wicked Hot Pepper Flake Linguine. For those that like a little kick, this linguine is just the thing. We recommend pairing it with some sautéed or grilled veggies, a little olive oil and some grated parmesan cheese.
Then there are those of looking for a big kick. If you’re on the same page, give this recipe a try…
Bring pot of water to boil. While you’re waiting, heat a large saucepan with a bit of olive oil. Add hot italian chicken sausage (really any sausage you like) and cook until browned. Add chopped garlic and crushed red pepper and sauté until fragrant. Next, add a large bunch of broccoli rabe, washed and chopped, and cover pan with a lid. While the broccoli rabe wilts, place frozen linguine in boiling salted water and cook for 2 minutes. Drain, reserving about 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Add pasta right to the saucepan, adding reserved pasta water as needed. Serve with a bit of grated parmesan and get ready to feel the heat!
Variations: If spicy isn’t your thing, try our Wheat & Ground Flaxseed Linguine with sweet chicken sausage and broccoli rabe. If you don’t eat meat, leave out the sausage all together. Broccoli Rabe too bitter? Swap it for some spinach, kale, arugula or other leafy green.
