Cut Spaghetti with Broccoli Recipe

(spaghetti tagliati con broccoli)

Preparation time : 40 minutes + 6 minutes cooking time

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • cut spaghetti 12 oz (350 g)
  • broccoli 1 lb (500 g)
  • prosciutto (dry-cured), in one slice 2 oz (60 g)
  • pork rinds 2 oz (60 g)
  • extra-virgin olive oil 1 tbsp + 2 tsp (20 ml)
  • yellow onions sliced 31/2 oz (100 g) about 11/2 small
  • garlic clove 1
  • Pecorino cheese, grated (preferably Romano) 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp (60 g)
  • water 41/4 cups (1 L)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method :

  1. Divide the broccoli into florets, wash it thoroughly, and cook it in lightly salted water on medium heat. When it’s done, remove the pot from the heat.
  2. Slice the onion, crush the garlic, and cut the prosciutto into small strips. Sauté the onion and garlic in the oil until they turn golden brown, then add the prosciutto to the pot. Mix well and add the water.
  3. Meanwhile clean the pork rinds very carefully, removing any bristles. Slice the rinds thinly. Blanch them in unsalted water, then add them to the pot with the prosciutto and water. Bring it to a boil, add a pinch of salt and pepper, and let it cook for about 5 minutes. Add the spaghetti and let it cook in the soup. A few minutes before you turn off the heat, add the broccoli florets with some of the water they cooked in (the soup should be slightly dense).
  4. Serve with grated cheese and a generous sprinkling of pepper.
