Very simple, with broccoli or broccoli rabe, parmesan, small additions for seasoning (anchovy, red pepper....or not, as you like it).
There are many recipes out there to use as a starting point, e.g.

Something rustic, like this recipe: http://www.foodandwine... I usually add spinach to everything and it would have parmesan Reggiano because I don't usually have provolone in the house.

parmesan and olive oil too, of course. Recipe a bit complicated but very good. I buy orecchiette just for that !

I love it with a simple bechamel, handfuls of grated asiago or parmesan, and either bacon or ham and some peas. I just rinse the frozen peas in a colander and dump them in. So comforting!

I vote the ham and peas with grated cheese and garlic.

I am also a fan of the simple broccoli rabe preparation, but sometimes a good tomato sauce and lots of cheese is just the ticket.

The well known Deborah Madison recipe which has chick peas as the key ingredient. It is an olive oil base with onion, garlic, sage and parsley, sprinkle of chilli flakes and lots of lemon zest to finish. Delicious with orecchiette.
