Wash produce before use
Prep the ingredients; cook the fusilli
Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil for the fusilli.
- Finely chop, press, or grate the garlic.
- Trim the root ends from the broccoli rabe; cut the broccoli rabe into 1-inch lengths.
- Coarsely chop the almonds.
- Crumble or coarsely chop the ricotta salata.
To the pot of boiling water, stir in the fusilli and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain the fusilli. Return the fusilli to the pot; toss with about 1 teaspoon oil to keep the noodles from sticking. While the fusilli is cooking, make the sauce.
Cook the sauce; finish the pasta
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the garlic, broccoli rabe, almonds, and sun-dried tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli rabe is just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the vegetable broth and sweet pea pistou and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the fusilli and toss to coat.
Transfer the fusilli and sauce to individual bowls. Sprinkle with the ricotta salata and as much Aleppo chile as you like and serve.
- Fill a sauce pot with water for the fusilli.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
