Lemony Broccoli Rabe with Parm and Chili Flakes
2 bunches fresh broccoli rabe
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 large lemon
1/2 teaspoon chili flakes (adjust to your liking)
1/3 cup grated parmesan or pecorino romano
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. (400 convection)
Take your broccoli rabe and place in a large bowl. Toss it with your oil, salt and garlic really well. Spread the broccoli over two baking sheets. Roast uncovered for 15 minutes.
Immediately after removing from the oven transfer to a serving platter and juice your lemon directly over the hot broccoli rabe. Sprinkle with your chili flakes and parmesan. Eat!
This dish is best made on the day you want to eat it.
You can cook the broccoli earlier in the day and then right before serving heat up for 4 minutes in a hot oven and then continue with the lemon, chili and cheese.
