Eatin' da Rapini

I really love Broccoli Rabe. It's also called Rapini. Oh, god, do I love this stuff. It is a slightly bitter green that has little broccolis in it.
Isn't it beautiful?

First I blanched it in boiling water for about 3-4 minutes. That helps to remove some of the bitterness. You can skip this if ya like it more bitter.

Then cut it into big chunks after it cooled. I sauteed some garlic with wild mushrooms, hot pepper flakes and some Gimme Lean sausage.

Add the broccoli rabe, and season with salt and pepper.

I threw a bit of cheddar cheese on top of my bowl, cuz I'm a cheddar whore like that. Eat, and freak out about how good it is.

You won't be sorry.

Another way you can do this is to cook up pasta and mix it all together. Mozzarella cheese is good melted on this, too. Pin It
