Broccoli rabe is a leafy green vegetable with a slightly bitter taste. Olive oil, vinegar, Parmesan, and salt and pepper are all you need to create this nutritious, Italian-inspired side dish.

How to Make It

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add broccoli rabe; boil 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain. Combine broccoli rabe, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; toss to coat. Sprinkle with shaved Parmesan cheese.

Good variation

May 19, 2015
I was looking for ideas for a head of broccoli instead of just steaming and serving with salt and pepper and this fit the bill. I used 2 tsp balsamic vinegar which seemed about right.

2 what of Balsamic?

The receipe says 2 balsamic vinegar.  Teaspoons? Tablespoons?
