Pasta with broccoli rabe and green garlic

This recipe for pasta with garlicky broccoli rabe from Smitten Kitchen is both easy and delicious.  
You start boiling the pasta, then add the chopped broccoli rabe five minutes before the end of the pasta's cooking time.
Instead of garlic, I used green garlic (the white part only), as we've been getting green garlic in our box each week lately, cooking it for about five minutes in olive oil (a little under a 1/2 cup) with 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes and 1 tsp of salt.  Once the pasta and broccoli rabe is cooked, drain and return it to the pan.  Pour the garlic and oil over the pasta and cook for a minute, then serve with parmesan.

I don't have a photo of the finished pasta.  It was late and we were hungry, so I didn't remember.  Head over to the Smitten Kitchen recipe to see what it looks like.
