Broccoli Rabe – Broccoli Rapa Strascinati

This Broccoli Rabe preparation is a traditional Italian Christmas side dish.  It is quick & easy to prepare, tasty and colorful.



Blanch the rabe in lightly salted boiling water for five minutes.  Drain well and squeeze lightly to dry.   Sauté the garlic in the oil for 1 minute then add the rabe and salt to cook, stirring often, for about 10 minutes.  Season with the lemon juice, chili-infused oil and anchovies (if you are using them) for the final 2 minutes.  Add lemon juice, chili-infused oil, salt and pepper to taste before serving.
