Pasta with Braised Radicchio

Pasta with Braised Radicchio

Radicchio’s main flavor characteristic is bitterness. Here, braised in a garlicky, prosciutto-enriched broth, the ruby-colored green’s powerful bite melts to a mellow meatiness.

Serves 6

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, slivered
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into 2 1/2-inch-long matchsticks
  • 2 large heads radicchio, cored and sliced
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 14-ounce c reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 pound whole-wheat linguine or spaghetti
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil for cooking pasta. Place a pasta-serving bowl and 4 individual pasta bowls in a warm oven.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic and crushed red pepper. Cook, stirring, until tender and fragrant but not brown, 30 to 60 seconds. Add prosciutto and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add radicchio, increase heat to medium and cook, turning with tongs, until wilted, 4 to 5 minutes. Season with pepper.

Step 3

Pour in broth and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until radicchio is tender, about 10 minutes.

Step 4

Meanwhile, cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and place in the warm serving bowl. Add sauce and 1/4 cup Parmesan; toss to coat. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve immediately, passing remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan separately.
