Recipe Reviewed: Broccoli Rabe with Pine Nuts and Raisins

I enjoyed this recipe.  It was really simple and the pine nuts add a nice bit of crunch and the raisins add an element of sweet to accompany the bitter greens.
I served mine with pasta.
I replaced the raisins with grapes I had frozen.  Years ago on The Splendid Table I heard a tip to freeze your grapes when they are about to age (you know, when the kids didn’t go through them fast enough).  The suggestion was to cook them with greens to contrast the bitterness with sweetness.  It works great!
