Red-Wine Spaghetti with Broc Raab

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 3/4 lb broccoli raab, thick stems discarded
  • 1 lb spaghetti
  • 1 (750-ml) bottle red wine (preferably Zinfandel)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped (2 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Parmesan Cheese

DIRECTIONS

  1. Boil and cook spaghetti, stirring occasionally, ONLY 5 minutes (pasta will not be fully cooked). 3.
  2. Drain in colander and return empty pot to stovetop. Add wine and sugar to pot and boil vigorously 2 minutes. Add spaghetti and shake pot to prevent pasta from sticking. Gently stir with tongs until coated and boil over high heat, stirring occasionally, until most of liquid is absorbed, about 6 minutes (pasta will be al dente and bright red!).
  3. While spaghetti is cooking, sauté broc raab, garlic and red pepper flakes in oil in a deep skillet over moderately low heat, shaking skillet occasionally until the broc raab is tender.
  4. Add spaghetti mixture into skillet, tossing with tongs to combine (skillet will be very full). Cook, stirring, until all of wine is absorbed, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheese.
  5. ENJOY!
