  • garlic (4-5 cloves)

  • ghee from grass-fed cows (1 Tbs)

  • shitake mushrooms (1/2 lb)

  • broccoli rabe (1 bunch)

  • rigatoni pasta (1 lb)

  • Parmigiano-Reggiano (1/2 cup)



  • In a large pot bring water to a boil and salt it well. Add chopped broccoli rabe and cook for about 5 minutes, or until it softens. Remove broccoli rabe with a slotted spoon, add pasta to the same water and cook according to package instructions. Reserve about half a cup of pasta water.


  • While pasta is cooking, in a large pot heat ghee over medium heat and saute garlic for about 1 minute. Stir in mushrooms, add a pinch of salt and saute for about 10 minutes.
