Sauteed Broccoli Raab with garlic and olive oil

1. Boil several quarts of water to boiling. Remove any tough or damaged outer leaves of broccoli raab. Peel thick, lower stems from broccoli raab. Tear broccoli raab into large pieces. Clean broccoli raab in a large amount of cold water until all dirt is removed.

2. When water is boiling, place broccoli raab pieces in colander and pour boiling water over them to scald. Drain broccoli raab well and set aside. Meanwhile, heat extra-virgin olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add garlic and crushed red pepper. Sauté garlic until browned. Be careful not to burn garlic! Add broccoli raab to the pan and toss to coat with garlic/pepper mixture and heat through, around 2 to 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper, if desired.
