This is an excellent one dish meal for spring and summer. The fresh lemon taste cannot be beat! The simple flavors come together so well...

1 lb broccoli rabe or broccolini, rough chopped
1/2lb fettucine
1 can (2c) chicken broth
juice of 2 lemons (3-4T)
3c shredded, cooked chicken (rotisserie works well)
3/4c parmesan cheese (fresh if possible)
1/2c pine nuts (optional)
2T fresh parsley
2T olive oil
1T lemon zest

Boil water in a med pot. Add broccoli rabe and cook for 2 min. Remove and add fettucine noodles to the water. Cook for 8 min (save 1/2c of pasta water to add later if needed). In a large skillet over med-high heat, boil chicken broth and lemon juice for 5 min. Add chicken and cook for 2 min. Add broccoli rabe, parmesan, pine nuts, parsley, olive oil, and lemon zest. Stir cooked noodles into skillet. Sprinkle with salt and parmesan cheese and serve.
