This is the way broccoli rabe was meant to be cooked. This goes great with a nice steak or fish. Serve with crusty Italian bread and some good vino. The best part is dipping the crusty bread in those juices. Buon appetito!

This is how you make broccoli rabe- no blanching. The only changes I made was that I used a lot more minced garlic. 9 cloves. I also tossed pine nuts in. Delicious.

Too bitter. Flash boil brocolli rabe in 4 quarts of salted water for 5 minutes immediately submerge in iced water. Press and drain in colander and salute as suggested in your recipe. A teaspoon of anchovy paste sauteed with garlic really makes it Sicilian.
