1 bunch (about 1 1/2 pounds) broccoli rabe, rinsed, thick ends of stems trimmed, cut into 2-inch lengths

Salt to taste

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 garlic clove, cut into thin slivers

Pinch red hot pepper flakes


  1. Fill a large wide saucepan with water; heat to boiling. Add the broccoli rabe and salt ; boil until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain immediately. Wipe the pan dry. Add the oil, garlic and red pepper flakes to the saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring, until warmed and garlic begins to sizzle, about 5 minutes. Stir the broccoli rabe into the warm oil to coat. Serve at once.
