Ingredients

  • Salt
  • 2 bunches broccoli rabe, trimmed and cut into 3-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 5 to 6 flat anchovy fillets
  • 4 large cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cups crumbled or grated ricotta salata

Preparation

In a deep skillet or large saucepan, bring 3 inches or water to a boil. Salt the water, add the broccoli rabe and cook for 3-4 minutes. Drain well. 

In a large skillet, heat the EVOO, 4 turns of the pan, over medium heat. Add the anchovies, cover the pan with a splatter screen or lid, and shake until the anchovies begin to break up. Reduce the heat a bit, uncover and stir until anchovies melt into the oil. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes, and stir for 1 minute. Add the chicken stock and heat through. Just before serving, add the broccoli rabe to the pan and heat through. 

Transfer to a serving platter and top with ricotta salata.
