My friend's mom, Liz, is one of the best home cooks I know. She is Sicilian-American like I am, and she makes everything from scratch – even her own ricotta and pasta. For Christmas Eve last year, she decided to make a dish I'll call Linguine with Shrimp and Rabe. She cooked all three ingredients separately, and in typical style of someone over 40, she overcooked the rabe so that when the dish came together, it was nice and mushy and delicious, almost like a soup. I decided to make it and cook the rabe a little less, but I honestly liked her version better!
This dish goes well served with a nice Roasted Tomato Bruschetta first, or alongside.
