  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 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 easy and came out great! I boiled it ahead of time and finished it in a sauté pan while my meat was resting. Will make again!!

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...
