*Broccoli rabe, also known as rapini, is a type of leafy green stalk with scattered clusters of small broccoli-like florets; available at many specialty foods stores and some supermarkets.



Ingredients
2 pounds broccoli rabe,* tough stems peeled
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
5 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
6 tablespoons freshly grated pecorino Romano cheese


Method
  1. Cook broccoli rabe in large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain and transfer to bowl of ice water to cool. Drain again; pat dry. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Wrap in paper towels. Enclose in plastic bag and chill.)
  2. Heat olive oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add broccoli rabe and sauté until heated through, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Sprinkle 4 tablespoons cheese over and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to warm platter. Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons cheese over.

Mt. Townsend Creamery aims to bring new life to dairy by creating wonderful cheese. From the beginning, we have prioritized using high-quality milk. Today Mt. Townsend’s cheeses are handcrafted from the milk of a single herd of 250 cows that live and graze on a family-owned farm, in Sequim, whose owners have been raising dairy cows for generations. https://mttownsendcreamery.com
