directions

  • Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Add broccoli rabe and cook until just bright green, then immediately remove and plunge into ice water. Drain and set aside.
  • In a skillet, over medium-high heat, saute the pancetta until lightly-crisp, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, 2 T olive oil and pepper flakes. Saute until garlic is slightly golden, about 1 minute. Add broccoli and more oil if needed. Toss and cook until tender and heated through. Remove from heat and add lemon juice. Transfer to a platter and garnish with more pepper flakes, parmesan and/or bread crumbs.

    This was a great combo together! I loved that the broccoli got so much flavor from the pancetta and there wasn't a need for additional salt. I did overcook my broccoli a little when I boiled it, but it still turned out great! Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #60.

    Lovely!! I used regular broccoli and a bit extra pancetta. Easy to do and such wonderful flavor!! Thanks for posting!

    This was really good. The recipe in my Williams-Sonoma "Vegetable" book is virtually identical, with the exception that it uses the juice of 1/2 of a lemon, which is what we used. In step 1, it gives a guideline that you will be cooking the broccoli rabe about 5 minutes. We served this as a side to Williams-Sonoma's braised short ribs recipe served over herbed spaetzle, which I will be posting the recipe for. We would make this again. Thanks!
