1/2 pound broccoli rabe (rapini), trimmed

1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Manchego cheese

2/3 cup chopped plum tomato
1/4 cup vertically sliced red onion


1. Preheat oven to 450°.

2. Cook broccoli rabe in boiling water 4 minutes or until tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drain; squeeze excess moisture from broccoli rabe, and pat dry with paper towels. Coarsely chop, and sprinkle with salt.
