Instructions
  1. Cook the broccoli raab in a large pot of boiling salted water until slightly tender but still firm, about 3 minutes.
  2. Remove the broccoli raab with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  3. Add the pasta to the same water and boil until almost cooked – it should still be quite firm.
  4. Drain the pasta, reserving about 1 cup (250 ml) of the cooking liquid.
  5. Heat the oil in a large skillet over moderate heat and sauté the olives, garlic, and chili flakes for about 2 minutes.
  6. Add the broccoli and cook an additional 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  7. Add the drained pasta and the reserved cooking liquid and cook, stirring frequently, until the pasta is al dente and most of the liquid is absorbed, 3 to 5 minutes.
  8. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper and garnish with pine nuts if desired.
Recipe Notes

I often serve with toasted pine nuts for an added texture.
