If you are not familiar with broccoli rabe, it’s a green leafy vegetable with small broccoli florets on the top. I was first introduced to it by my husband who ate it growing up. It’s a very healthy vegetable and is a bit of a bitter flavor. If you have never heard of it, it’s worth trying. This is how I cooked it tonight, it was so easy and my family loved it.
