Stir in bread crumbs and cayenne pepper and cook until bread crumbs are golden, about 6 minutes or so.

Remove and set aside.

Cook rapini (broccoli rabe) in boiling water until it is soft, 3 to 4 minutes.

Remove with a slotted spoon, drain well and chop.

Cook pasta in same pot.

Meanwhile, add remaining oil to skillet over medium-low heat.

Stir in broccoli rabe and toss well, season with salt and pepper to taste.

When pasta is done, drain it, reserving a little cooking liquid.

Season with more salt and black pepper.

Serve with Parmesan.

Nice, simple recipe. I might recommend about half as many bread crumbs; they made the whole dish very dry, even after adding reserve liquid in excess.
