    Lowfat Linda's Note:

    This recipe was printed in Boston Globe's 'Ask the Chef' column this week. The recipe originates from Rino's Place in East Boston. It's pretty tasty (even my 9 year old devoured it) and gave me an excuse to try a new veggie -- broccoli rabe. I'm posting the recipe the way I made it tonight, but if you want to try the Rino's Place, full calorie version, use 5/8 C of oil instead of 1/3 C and add 4 tablespoons of butter at the same time as the wine. I made this with whole wheat fusilli -- its a bit heavier and a little nuttier tasting than regular fusilli, and offers your family a serving of whole grains. I think this dish would go well as a dish to pass or as a dish to serve for company.

      My family loved this. I had to use the shortcut already grilled frozen chicken breast as it was a last minute use for some broccoli rabe I found on sale. I found this easy to make with ingredients I almost always have on hand.

      After 30 years of cooking I thought there wasn't anything new out there! This was easy, light - no heavy sauce, just wine and broth - and absolutely delicious. I added some adobo and Mrs. Dash to the flour when I dredged the chicken. Love it!

      I made this with asparagus and loved it. It was flavorful and satisfying. I will make it again.
