Ingredients

  • 2 bunches broccoli rabe

  • Freshly ground black pepper (optional)

Boil several quarts of water to boiling. Remove any tough or damaged outer leaves of broccoli rabe. Peel thick, lower stems from broccoli rabe. Tear broccoli rabe into large pieces. Clean broccoli rabe in a large amount of cold water until all dirt is removed.

Place broccoli rabe in boiling, take them out al dente about 2 minutes after. Drain broccoli rabe well and set aside. Meanwhile, heat extra-virgin olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat.
