I created this recipe for pasta primavera with sage gorgonzola cheese sauce on the spur of the moment. We are on a low cholesterol, low salt diet, and finding tasty recipes is challenging.
Broccoli rabe recipes tend to use tons of salt, oil, and fat to add flavor. Fats such as olive oil and the drippings from bacon, pancetta, and ham do increase the body’s ability to absorb the wide array of important vitamins and minerals found in broccoli rabe, but I needed to cut back on the salt for my family’s diet. This recipe for classic Rustic Broccoli Rabe with Potatoes eliminates all added salt and uses just a pinch of ham for flavor.
