    1. 1
      Cook the orecchiette according to the package directions.
    2. 2
      About a minute or two before the pasta is cooked, stir in the chopped broccoli rabe. Before draining the pasta and broccoli rabe, reserve 1 ½ cups of the cooking liquid.
    3. 3
      If you place a measuring cup in the colander set in your sink, it will serve as a reminder to reserve the cooking liquid.
    4. 4
      After reserving the 1½ cups of cooking liquid, drain the pasta and broccoli rabe.
    5. 5
      Return the drained pasta and broccoli rabe to the empty pot and set on the stove, but don’t turn on the burner under it. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat.
    6. 6
      Add the garlic, salt and pepper to taste, the crushed red pepper flakes and the fennel seeds. Cook for about 2 minutes, stirring until just golden brown but not burned.
    7. 7
      Add the Caravella Limoncello and the reserved cooking liquid. Cook at a low-medium boil, stirring occasionally for 1 minute.
    8. 8
      Turn the garlic mixture into the pot of pasta and broccoli rabe and stir to combine.
    9. 9
      Scatter the slices of butter over the top and stir to mix well until the butter melts and the sauce looks creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serves 4-6.
