  1. Prepare to cook the pasta by bringing a pot to boil with plenty of water.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the Garlic-Shallot Mixture and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the tip off the stems of the broccoli rabe and discard. Cut the remaining greens into thirds. Put in the skillet and cook a few minutes, turn once, add 2 tablespoons water, cover, and cook another few minutes.
  4. "Throw" the pasta in boiling water and stir well, return to a boil, and stir again. The pasta will cook in about 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. At this point, check the broccoli rabe. If it is tender, remove from the skillet and dress with 2 tablespoons tamari and set aside.
  6. Drain the pasta and toss with a tablespoon of oil and salt to taste.
  7. Serve pasta topped with the rabe and freshly shaved Pecorino Romano cheese.
