Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Delicious and quick
Very different & delicious!
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.
I used the regular broccoli and added chicken for a little protein and my husband loved it. I doubled the amount of garlic and crushed red pepper flakes to give it a little kick.
Very light and tasty.
Nice side dish. I may try to use all broth & thicken next time for a creamy sauce like texture.
I used broccoli and all the other ingredients listed and it was really good. The next time I think I will add the shrimp as others have suggested and I may use some cornstarch to thicken the broth.
Even my picky eater kids cleaned their plate with dish.
I substituted spinach for the rabe. My husband and I both enjoyed it.
Broccoli rabe really only needs olive oil,garlic, rabe and pasta. Add ons red pepper flakes, black pepper. Try Italian sausage added as cooked. Toasted pine nuts would be another great add on. Chicken broth no way.
