    • 2 pounds broccoli rabe, stem ends trimmed, chopped
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 6 anchovy fillets, chopped
    • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper, (optional)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • Freshly ground pepper, to taste


    Step 1
    Bring a large pot or Dutch oven of water to a boil. Add broccoli rabe and cook until tender when pierced with a fork, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain well.
    Step 2
    Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, anchovies and crushed red pepper (if using); cook, stirring, until the garlic is very light brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the broccoli rabe, toss to coat, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.
