Directions/Steps
  1. In a large pot (6-8 quart size), fill 3/4 way with cold salted water. Bring water to a boil.
  2. While water is coming to a boil, trim the large woody portions of the stems from the broccoli rabe. Place large bunches into the boiling water.
  3. Blanch the broccoli rabe until crisp tender, about 2 to 3 minutes per bunch.
  4. Transfer the broccoli rabe to a large bowl of ice water to cool. Reserve about 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Drain the cooled broccoli rabe and set aside.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes, and sauté until the garlic is golden, about 1 minute.
  6. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the broccoli rabe and toss to coat. Add the reserved cooking water, and cook until the broccoli rabe is heated through and the stems are tender, about 4 minutes.
  7. Season with salt, to taste.
  8. Serve immediately tossing the broccoli rabe with the toasted pine nuts, is a matter of taste.
  9. You can also serve with rigatoni, ziti or your favorite pasta.

I love this old family favorite. The addition of some lemon juice and touch of freshly grated nutmeg improves the flavor and balances with the bitter greens.
