We wanted to develop a dependable, quick broccoli recipe that would deliver less bitterness and a rounder, more balanced flavor. We found that blanching the rabe in a large amount of salted water tamed its bitterness.

Serves 4

Using a salad spinner makes easy work of drying the cooled blanched broccoli rabe. This recipe can be turned into a main course pasta dish. Increase the oil to 4 tablespoons and toss the broccoli rabe with 1 pound of pasta, cooked al dente. Season to taste with salt and ground black pepper, and serve with grated Parmesan cheese.
