2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 clove Garlic
0 1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
2 lb fresh broccoli rabe FNDDS

Broccoli rabe has 6- to 9-inch stalks and scattered clusters of tiny broccoli-like buds. It has a more bitter taste than its more familiar cousin. It takes beautifully to sautéing or braising. Feel free to substitute broccoli in this recipe if you prefer. Cut a 2-pound head of broccoli into small florets, then peel the stems and cut in 1/2-inch pieces.
- In a large, deep skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add minced garlic and pepper flakes; sauté 30 seconds.
- Add broccoli rabe, water, lemon juice and lemon zest; mix well. Cover skillet and cook over medium heat 8 minutes or until broccoli rabe is crisp-tender.
- Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with Parmesan.
