I made this recipe today using angel hair pasta and a 16 oz. bag of frozen chopped spinach with spinach shaped in cubes. I didn't have broccoli rabe on hand. I also used more anchovy, maybe 9 fillets. The remaining ingredients were the same as stated in the recipe. It was delicious! I will definitely make this again. My husband and grown sons loved it.

Great recipe that can be easily adapted.. No anchovies for me.. but if you are not a fan of broccoli rabe.. you could sub spinach.. or kale.. I think it would meld nicely.. but you will not taste broccoli in rabe.. it is slightly bitter and not related to broccoli..

What you suggest I use in place of broccoli, my very least favorite veggie?
