Leafy green broccoli rabe is slightly bitter, so boil it first before you sauté in a garlic-infused oil for this simple side dish.
Cook broccoli rabe in boiling water 6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge broccoli rabe into ice water; drain. Coarsely chop.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in broccoli rabe, salt, and peppers.
Good, easy, try cooking the rabe for about 3 minutes, then check, especially if halving the recipe. (1-6-07)
