A quick, easy, five-ingredient dish that's perfect for weeknight dinners: Vegan Garlicky Pasta with Broccoli Rabe. The dish comes together in 30 minutes and is vegan, soy-free, and nut-free. It can be made with gluten-free pasta.
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the broccoli rabe and cook for two minutes. Remove the broccoli rabe to a chopping board, chop, and set aside. Cook the pasta in the same water according to package directions until al dente.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the garlic and saute until it starts to turn light gold.
Add the red pepper flakes, the broccoli rabe, and salt and black pepper to taste. Stir-fry for 4-5 minutes.
Add the pasta with a cup of the pasta cooking water. Add the parsley, stir well to mix, check seasoning, and turn off the heat.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
