  • Meanwhile, cook pasta in a saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente. Drain well, then add to broccolini mixture and toss to combine. Serve pasta divided among shallow bowls and scattered with grated pecorino.

Cool, then process in a food processor, using the pulse button, or place in a mortar and, using a pestle, pound unitl coarse. Breadcumbs may be frozen in airtight plastic bags for up to 3 months.
