Broccoli Rabe is probably the most eaten vegetable in the Deluca household; we absolutely love it. When it is just us, we make it as a snack. Broccoli rabe is certainly delicious enough on its own. However, it is perfect pre-dinner fare when served on a crostini for bruschetta with mozzarella di bufala. Paired with our guests favorite libation, it is usually gone as soon as it arrives at the table!
It is a very simple Italian dish that highlights the quality of the ingredients. The cooked broccoli rabe is also great in the main course or if you have any left over, it can be combined with ricotta cheese or Parmigiano to make a frittata for breakfast.
