  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli rabe, and cook uncovered until the stems are tender, about 5 minutes. Drain in a colander.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook until tender, about 1 minute. Add the broccoli rabe. Cook and stir until the broccoli rabe has been cooked to your desired degree of tenderness, about 5 minutes for soft. Stir in the roasted peppers until heated, then remove the skillet from the heat, and stir in the lemon juice. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve.

I am constantly looking for recipes to make in advance for lunch for the week. This one is spectacular. I put some provolone on half of a potato roll with the rabe in the middle. I enjoyed it ve...

I subbed EVOO for Kerrygold grass-fed butter; tasted great. Easy, hassle-free side. Will make again.

Very good; rave reviews from my family! Take care NOT to overcook. We're trying it again tonight as a topping on my homemade pizza :) I think will give it a gourmet flare!

Very good and very simple to make. I didnt use the lemon only because I used this recipe as a pizza topping. Will make again. EDIT: served extra next day to compliment chicken francese. Added l...

My only notes to this recipe - I used fire roasted red peppers, used 3 gloves of garlic (not 5) and added it all the food processor (along with the lemon juice, Parmesan and evo). I also added s...

easy and yummy. I was concerned about too much garlic but it really mellowed, although we do like garlic. Maybe the bunches of broccoli rage my store sells are small but no way did this make 6...
