Hello to my followers and friends of Patty P Here!! As most of you know, i am a master chef along with my other talents for fashion and other interests! Today, i am going to let go of one of my favorite own recipes of Patty P to my followers. I am in Florida with my family this week, so on my last day, i offered to cook my latest creation for the ones i love......
Here is the recipe for the delicious meal shown here in my pictures....

2 bunches of fresh broccoli rabe chopped without stems
1 can of white cannellini beans
4 cloves of fresh chopped garlic chopped
6 heads of fresh sun dried tomatoes chopped
1 cup of chicken broth
1/2 cup of pasta water

1/2 stick of butter
kosher salt
red hot pepper flakes

Chop the broccoli rabe into bite sized pieces, chop the garlic heads into minced pieces.....open a can and drain a can of the cannellini beans, chop the sun dried tomatoes into small pieces.  put a full cup of extra virgin olive oil into a large skillet pan and heat to medium, add the garlic, broccoli rabe and sun dried tomatoes, and canellini  beans and saute to a medium softness with some crispness.
in the mean time, bring a full quart of water to a boil with a tlb of kosher salt in the water, add the whole wheat pasta to cook for 10 minutes,
when the pasta is almost finished, add about 1 cup of the pasta water to the broccoli rabe mixture, add the butter and the chicken broth and the 1/2 cup of cream, bring to a simmer, add the drained pasta and toss immediately, add some  fresh romano cheese on top and serve immediately!!
