This is an excellent side dish. Some people like to discard the stems because they are bitter. I like to include them, the bold flavor is softened with the spicy red pepper flakes, garlic and oil.
2 lbs broccoli rabe
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, sliced thin
1 tsp red pepper flakes
freshly ground pepper
In a large saucepan, bring 2 quarts heavily salted water to a boil.
Wash broccoli rabe, cut off tough stems and remove any yellow leaves. Cut broccoli rabe into 2 inch pieces. Add to boiling water and cook into crisp-tender about 2 minutes. Drain. Set aside.
Dry pan and heat over medium heat. Add olive oil. Add garlic and red pepper flakes. Sauté until garlic turns light golden brown, about 1 minute. Add broccoli rabe and toss well. Cook about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
