I just want you to know that I’ve made this 3 or 4 times in the past couple of months and it’s definitely one of my favorite recipes here. Lucky that our butcher had salsiccia today, normally I can’t find it anywhere. Ended up making it with broccolini and broccoli since they didn’t have rabe at the store I went to in a hurry. is there a good substitute for the milk in this? Looks delicious! Sauté until broccoli is fragrant and … Cooked for 4 but could serve 8!!! Also, how will/would this affect cooking temp and time if assembling and freezing ahead? Can you help???? I do maybe trim the last 1/4-inch of dried end/scruff off. (Sure they still preferred Kraft’s fake stuff, but that’s beside the point.) As if I hadn’t messed with the original recipe enough, my kids also renamed it. I hope you get to enjoy the dish. The crunchy noodles on top are what dreams are made of. also I just used whole wheat bowtie pasta I had lying around, so yummy. Un piatto unico gustoso, molto invitante. Just in case, I 1.5’d the béchamel (and mozzarella), which I never usually do, and the outcome is terrific. Tonight I didn’t have rabe and didn’t wnat to make a lockdown run for just one item, so used roasted cauliflower and onion instead. Thank you so much for the kind words, Nancy. Ale — Ha! I made it with a small bundle of broccolini, and in the future I’ll add more broccolini and reduce the sausage a little (though my husband will argue about that). Because I’m all by myself, the whole recipe and one person is a definition of FOREVER! Thanks! If you warm your milk and ladle it into your roux when making bechamel it will not lump nor does it take nearly as long! No other way to describe it. I mixed mild and spicy Italian sausage to not over power. Love this recipe! That’s a good sign! Oooh-ahr! I did not make any extra sauce and it was perfect for us, we’re not into overly creamy pastas and like more of the extras vs. the pasta itself. Happy Thanksgiving! Holy hot nuts, this was AMAZING!!

I modified the recipe to include 2 bunches of kale and 1 broccolini and a sweet basil chicken sausage and slightly more cheese and it was killller! Thanks for an easy crowd pleaser! Still delightful!

Next time I’ll try making a bit more and see if I like it better. I made this recipe last night and it was a definite hit!!! I heard your interview on NPR as it was broadcast … serendipitous, since we’d enjoyed the kale salad just a few days before. Really good stuff! Made it last night – quite tasty. Love your recipe! Obviously I then realized you meant just that everything was happening ALL-AT-ONCE, as it always seems to. Thank you! it’s Deb! We ate it again for lunch today – still a HUGE hit. My daughter took all the leftovers for lunch today. Lactose-free life sucks but I don’t want to give up beautiful things like baked pasta and it’s just not the same without the bechamel! The market didn’t have broccoli rabe today and regular broccoli worked fine. Jamine — The recipe is for uncooked pasta, which usually comes in about 1-pound boxes. So so delicious! Althea. I have made this several times now and it‘s terrific! Thank you so much. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. and I think I went over by a minute or two. I love the pasta you used here, so pretty. Any guidelines? Maybe they share your reservations on the texture thing. Wow… such a great recipe! Post was not sent - check your email addresses! But the bread is really just a filler here, so you can use whatever kind you like. Also, we slice up cheese sticks for the mozzarella part, so that makes things easy too. Would it be possible to make this the day before, possibly by doing everything but baking it? Michelle — There’s a link to the baking pan at the bottom of the recipe. and my family devoured this. Yes! Perfect fall comfort food!! made this on the weekend. Utilized campanelle for the recipe. The stuff in the water makes things too soggy, IMHO, and I prefer it for fresh uses, like salads. I had to double the recipe and made it in a lasagna pan, but followed the recipe exactly, just omitting the parmesan topping...so much cheese already!

Thanks for sharing your family recipe. I made this last night and it was delicious! Clotilde of Chocolate and Zucchini has tips on that. Ok.. despite the ridiculous humidity today, this is in the oven as I type. Next project might be attempting to do your spaghetti pecorino pie with spaghetti squash. Absolutely no problems, but I think it needs to be sauted with the butter for several minutes (longer) before adding the milk. Re, the sausage: Sausage meat is highly seasoned and delicious; it’s an easy way to get a ton of flavor into the dish as fresh Italian sausage is readily available here. 10/10 would recommend. Loved the cleaner taste, honestly. I made this with Bionaturae gluten-free pasta, and it turned out great! I will really look forward to enjoying your site and your cookbook and sharing the experiences with both of my daughters. Broil the cheese for a few minutes at the end to brown the cheese, if desired. Thank you! Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×9-inch baking dish with vegetable oil cooking spray. It was AMAZING. and no, I am NOT desperate enough to roll it out myself!! I did not even get any because it was gone so fast! Cook the pasta and rabe: Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil. I froze two-thirds of it as we have company coming at the end of the month. Great dinner. Just what I needed on a week when I, too, was in the weeds. So, I would have done that too. I never claimed to be a model human. Blanched fresh broccoli and I liked that better too. I loved the look of this recipe but was feeling a bit too lazy to make bechamel (sacrilege, I know) and I also couldn’t find broccoli rabe in East London, so I mixed it up: I stirred lemon zest from a whole lemon into a pot of ricotta as my bechamel substitute, and sauteed a good couple of handfuls of kale in the sausage fat, and added both of these to the broccoli-pasta-sausage-pecorino mix in my bowl (I ditched the mozzarella too because ricotta). My family really enjoyed this recipe, particularly my mom who doesn’t like anything resembling “white” sauce (with the exception of béchamel for moussaka or pastitsio). My husband said “I know this is pasta but somehow I don’t feel so bad after eating it”. I prepared it the day before and kept it uncooked in the fridge, then popped it in the oven while we let the turkey rest. Awesome as always! I asked my dad if he had any requests from last Thanksgiving and he answered “that delicious broccoli rice thing”! I’ve made dishes with rabe before but always take off the stems and only cook the leafy greens. It. So yummy. Verdict- no need to increase the béchamel, portions are great, and it’s fast enough to throw together on a work night. I made this tonight and it is delectable!! Made it vegan with vegan butter and cheddar, homemade hemp milk, cashew-based creme fraiche instead of sour cream. Maybe with double the broccoli.

Grape tomatoes and mushrooms were on sale on the weekend, and after halving the tomatoes and quartering the cleaned mushrooms, they were each put into Definitely one of my top favorite vegetables! Deb, you mighty pasta bake hero, you’ve done it again. It was easy, delicious, and made a ton for leftovers. The only adjustment I made was to add more pepper and nutmeg to the bechamel (I pretty much add more spice to every recipe, that’s just my personal taste preference). I still used the full bechemel recipe and reduced the broccoli rabe, mozzarella, parm, and sausage by a tiny bit. Yes, it was 8pm when I started, and yes, I had to run to the store for pasta that wasn’t angel hair, and yes, I ate it straight from the oven. Again, thank you!

Just wanted to thank you for your witty camaraderie, and for providing such great inspiration and recipes that I totally trust that I always know exactly what to expect. This will definitely be going in the rotation. Made this last night with almond milk (and without the sausage). This looks infinitely variable- thanks again. I made the extra bechamel and used straight broccoli instead of raab, because that’s what the CSA gave us, and in a tacky move, I subbed cottage cheese for the mozzarella because I had half a container leftover from something.
