Pasta
  • Bring a large pot of
    salted water to boiling. Add
    broccolini and cook 3 minutes
    (MAYBE LESS; I USED
    BROCCOLI). Remove with a
    slotted spoon to a bowl and set
    aside. Return water to boiling.
    Add cavatelli to boiling water
    and cook 5 to 6 minutes.
    Drain, reserving ½ cup
    cooking water.

  • While the pasta boils, cook
    meatballs. Heat 2 tbsp of the
    oil in a large skillet over
    medium-high heat. Add half
    the meatballs and brown on
    all sides, about 5 minutes.
    Remove to a plate and repeat
    with remaining tbsp oil and
    remainng meatballs. Remove
    from heat.

  • Pasta: Heat ¼ cup olive oil
    in pasta pot over mediumhigh
    heat. Add garlic and red
    pepper flakes; cook 1 minute.
    Stir in broccolini and
    meatballs and cook 2 minutes.
    Remove from heat and add
    pasta, some of the reserved
    pasta water and the grated
    cheese. Toss to combine.
    Spoon into bowls and top with
    additional cheese, if desired.
