"This was just OK. I made it with one bunch of broccoli rabe for the two of us, and I felt as though I'd dirtied half my prep utensils for very little return. It's a very healthy side dish, though, so I'll keep experimenting. Next time I'll boil the rabe a bit longer, perhaps for 2-1/2 minutes after the water returns to a full boil. I'll also reduce the crushed red pepper to a bare sprinkle and will research ways to reduce the rabe's bitterness. (Adding lemon juice to the water didn't help.)"
