Number of Servings: 4


    4 c broccoli rabe, washed and coarsely chopped
    1 T olive oil (or more if necessary)
    1-2 cloves garlic, sliced thin
    .5-1 t crushed red pepper


Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a large stockpot. Add a few pinches of salt, and add broccoli rabe to boiling water.

After 3 minutes, drain broccoli rabe. Rinse stockpot with cold water to cool, then fill with cold water. Return broccoli rabe to the cold water to stop cooking process. Take the greens out a handful at a time, squeezing gently to remove all water and place back in the drainer.

Heat olive oil in a skillet or saute pan over medium low heat. Add garlic and crushed red pepper, saute carefully until garlic just begins to turn a light tan color. Add the broccoli rabe, stir to coat well in olive oil, and heat through. Serve immediately.

Makes 4 1/2 c servings.
