I used to think the correct way to pronounce Broccoli Rabe was RAW-BAY. I remember that every time my godfather pronounced it Broccoli ROB, I chuckled to myself. When I realized I was the one mispronouncing it, I decided to make up for my mistake by using it as key ingredient in numerous recipes!

Anyway, Potato/Potatoe, Broccoli Rabe is all sorts of delicious. This recipe a great red and green main or side dish to serve during the holidays.
