From the Test Kitchen

Broccoli rabe (or raab), with its interior buds, sure does look like a lot like broccoli. Believe it or not, it’s actually a member of the mustard family and is very closely related to the turnip. In this recipe, the vegetable mingles with fresh pasta in a creamy sauce made of yogurt and North African chili paste called harissa.
