  • Ready In

  1. Heat olive oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Stir garlic into the oil; cook and stir until softened but not browned, about 1 minute. Add the crushed red pepper and pepperoni; cook and stir to blend flavors, about 1 additional minute.
  2. Stir in the broccoli rabe, coating the leaves well with oil. Cover and cook until broccoli rabe is fully wilted and soft, about 15 minutes. Season with salt.
  3. Place a piece of cheese on cut side of each roll; fill with the broccoli rabe mixture. Serve warm.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes
  • Soak the broccoli rabe in clean, cold water before cooking to be sure to remove any grit.
  • The key to cooking these is they need to be tender, (like cooked spinach) simmering covered until tender is the key once they've reduced in size.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Delicious! The only change I made was that I used a whole grain tortilla instead of the Italian roll.

Excellent! I wouldn't change a thing.
