Hot Peppered Broccoli Rabe Recipe


Hot peppered broccoli rabe is great over fusilli or rotini pasta, both have a spiral shape and will hold the slightly thickened sauce well. You don't want a delicate pasta for this vegetable because broccoli rabe with its somewhat bitter taste is not a 'shy' or subtle vegetable. This dish is not only delicious it is a feast for the eyes as well.

INGREDIENTS

3 lb broccoli rabe
4 tblspns olive oil
3 or 4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup of lightly salted chicken broth (do not use bouillon cubes to make broth)
1 doz. cherry tomatoes cut in halves
3/4 to 1 tspn dried hot red pepper flakes
1 pat of butter
Salt to taste

DIRECTIONS

Rinse and trim broccoli rabe stems and cut into small pieces. Break the florettes and stems; blanch, then drain. Pour olive oil in large pan over medium high heat. Add minced garlic and tomatoes, stir and saute, 2 to 3 minutes only. Stir gently to keep tomatoes from breaking. Add broccoli rabe and dried hot pepper flakes. Stir to coat mixture, then add chicken broth and cover pan tightly to steam. Cook for 5 minutes or until broccoli rabe tender. Add butter pat, allow to melt, stir and cover pan for a couple of minutes before serving.

Makes 5 to 6 servings over pasta or rice.

Recommended: I like Barbara Kafka's book about vegetables because I love them. These days, most supermarkets have a wide range of veggies, some are new to me but I am always willing to try them. Kafka's book Vegetable Love is a little wordy but is filled with useful information and recipes galore. By the way, even though there are numerous recipes, she calls this A book for cooks, not a cookbook.
