Sharing this deliciousness with you from the road today!

As we make our way to D.C. for the weekend, I’m in the passenger seat and Richard is navigating that “fun” little stretch of I-95 that corrals the (currently engulfed in a blanket of pollen-y haze) city of Richmond.

And now onto the main event: with the perfect amount of spicy heat and salty parmesan, Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen has stolen the hearts of the Marshall household (okay, with the exception of the cats — Gretchen thinks it could use some crab) with this ridiculously simple dish.

By the way, we are weird.

We prefer this dish cold.

Yep, pasta salad style.

Minus the mayo, of course!

I mean, really, though… Swap the broccoli rabe out for spinach. Try it with tortellini. Add diced zucchini or Roma tomatoes.

Make it your own!
