Broccoli rabe has to be one of my favorite green vegetables. Despite its name, its actually more closely related to turnips than to broccoli, and it has a distinctive bitter, peppery flavor to show for it.

Remove from the pan and drain off any excess liquid. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve as a side dish with a squeeze of lemon.
