Garlic Parmesan Fettucine w/ Broccoli Rabe

My farmer freind Peter Paniccia gave me tons of gorgeous organic broccoli rabe and I decided to make a one pot pasta with it. We used a really simple recipe Garlic Parmesan Fettucine recipe from Damn Delicious to which we added the broccoli rabe. You can substitute with any leafy green vegetable – just adjust the cook time accordingly.
