Pasta with Brown Butter Balsamic Sauce

I made the brown butter balsamic sauce recipe from 101 Cookbooks, which was delicious. I think the sauce would work well with a lot of different pastas. I used angel hair pasta instead of tortellini, but I made way too much pasta. Next time I’ll make less.

I also used sauteed broccoli rabe instead of arugula, which took longer but was pretty good. I always forget how much greens cook down, so I only cooked half of the bunch and ended up cooking the rest the next day. A single bunch of broccoli rabe probably makes 4-5 portions.

I also used leeks instead of onions, but sadly burned them because I didn’t take them out of the pan before I added the broccoli rabe. I might try this technique for caramelizing leeks next time.
