CIME DI RAPA, Friarielli, Rapini, Broccoletti - Whatever the name, they are delicious.

Cime di rapa is a slightly bitter green, very popular in Italy and is very popular with Italians living in America. 












There are many simple ways of bringing broccolini to the table.

There are many that love them al natural, simply boiled and seasoned with olive oil, salt and lemon.

There are those who prefer them braised with olive oil, garlic and peperoncino.




Others prefer them with pasta



As a side dish to meat (pork is my choice).


Ciff e Ciaff

If you only want a light and fast dish:  cime di rapa and eggs is the answer.




Adding greens with loads of garlic and a jolt of red pepper flakes, brakes up all that creamy lusciousness of the eggs.

So many choices....so much healthy delight.
