Ginger’s Go-To Broccoli Rabe
Similar to a caesar salad. The anchovy paste balances out the bitterness of the broccoli rabe. 
Ingredients:
  • 1 bunch of broccoli rabe, stems removed
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • anchovy paste
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
Directions:
  1. Add broccoli rabe to a pot of boiling water.  After 3-4 minutes drain and set to the side.
  2. Heat olive oil in a heavy saute pan.  Add onion and saute until onions are clear.  Add a 1-2 inch ribbon of anchovy paste and garlic to pan and saute for a minute or two until fragrant.
  3. Add drained broccoli rabe and saute until tender and wilted.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan until incorporated.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with more freshly grated parmesan and fresh black pepper.
