Spicy Broccoli Rabe with Parmesan and Pine Nuts

Spicy Broccoli Rabe with Parmesan and Pine Nuts recipe 

Rich, buttery parmesan and pine nuts balance out the bitter flavor that is characteristic of broccoli rabe. Serve this classic Italian side dish with steak Florentine or porchetta, or try it in a sandwich if you have leftovers.

Fill a large pot with salted water and bring to boil over high heat. Fill a large bowl with ice water.


Add the rabe to the boiling water and cook until bright green, about 2 minutes. Drain and submerge in bowl of ice water until cool, about 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.


In a large skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil. Add the garlic, red pepper flakes, and anchovies, stirring and breaking up the anchovies with a wooden spoon. Cook until garlic is fragrant and light golden in color, 1 minute.


Add the rabe to the pan with any residual water. Cook, tossing occasionally, until the mixture starts to wilt, about 2 minutes. Add the salt and pepper and cook until rabe is crisp tender, about 3 minutes more.


Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Taste and adjust seasoning. Spoon onto plates or a platter and top with parmesan and pine nuts.
