Broccoli Rabe with Roasted Peppers
Based on

2 large peppers (any variety – I had Carmen and another sweet, a mild hot would have been nice)
1 bunch Broccoli Rabe
1 T olive oil
2-3 cloves garlic, sliced
Salt and pepper

Optional Add Ins – Sausage, Pasta

Place peppers on the grill for 15 minutes. Turn every few minutes to char all sides. Place peppers in a shallow bowl and cover with plastic wrap for 10 minutes. Remove peppers from bowl, remove skins and seeds. Cut peppers into 2-3 inch strips.

Meanwhile boil salted water. Add Broccoli Rabe for 3-4 minutes. Remove to an ice bath.

Heat oil in a skillet. Add garlic, salt and pepper. When garlic begins to brown add drained Broccoli Rabe and Pepper strips. Heat through until moisture evaporates and vegetables begin to brown.

Optional Add Ins – any type of sausage (add to the oil with Broccoli Rabe and Peppers), pasta, especially penne (toss in at the end)
