“Casarecce translates into homemade.  I think the word Casa is giveaway, right? Basically, its a loosely folded pasta which makes them very light and fluffy…

Broccolini rabe is not at all related to any member of the broccoli family. Shocking, isn’t it?

Broccolini, on the other hand, is a slightly sweeter vegetable.  I like eating it raw just like regular broccoli. Broccolini is a relatively new vegetable.  Broccoli and Chinese broccoli were sitting in a tree in 1993 and K-I-S-S-I-N-G!

And that’s how regular broccolini came into existence!”

I admit that I haven’t heard of this before, but I’m trying to get out of my cooking comfort zone and try new things.
