“I created this because I needed a quick entrée with few ingredients. The garlic flavored oil makes the broccoli rabe less bitter, and with toasted garlic, it's a great dish.” —Mary Ann Lee, Clifton Park, New York

Awesome! I used regular broccoli, instead of broccoli rabe. It's really spicy, but really yummy! It's a keeper :D

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 8, 2011

This is really good, quick and easy. A few tips: I can never find broccoli rabe. All I can ever find is broccolini. Sometimes it's called "aspiration" ? I think the two vegetables are very similar. Also, my kids and I do not care for spicy foods, so I use 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper. Another thing...I think that 3 cloves of garlic is not enough. I use 4 fairly big cloves. Add salad, and Italian bread and you have a satisfying vegetarian meal.
