INGREDIENTS

2 teaspoons organic dried lemon grass, re-hydrated (for infused broth)
1/2 cup hot water
½ lb. uncooked angel hair pasta
4 tablespoons light olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼ onion, finely chopped
1 lb. broccoli rabe, trimmed, and cut into 2” pieces
Red Onion Organic Spice 
& Tea Company - Juneau, Alaska
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
½ cup white wine
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 4 pats, at room temp.
2 tablespoons organic dried parsley
1 lb. shrimp/prawns, peeled and deveined

--warm crusty bread slices for sopping up sauce

METHOD

Make the infused dried lemon grass by immersing it into 1/2-cup hot water; letting it steep for 2 to 4 hours. Pour through a strainer, and just reserve liquid broth; set aside. Toss lemon grass pieces.

Cook angel hair pasta according to package directions, about 7 minutes.

Ready to plate
Meanwhile, heat large skillet over medium-high heat, and saute garlic, and onion in light olive oil for 1 minute. Add the prepared broccoli rabe, sea salt, ground pepper, red pepper flakes, and 1/2-cup lemon grass broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add wine, and butter, and prepared shrimp, and parsley; let simmer; uncovered for 2 minutes (turning shrimp after 1 minute). Remove skillet from heat.

Drain angel hair pasta (reserving 1 cup of hot pasta-water, about 2 ladles); add pasta to the skillet. Add reserved pasta-water to moisten the angel hair pasta. Toss with tongs to combine, and pour the entire contents onto a serving platter, and place the warm crust bread slices along side – Enjoy!
