Wow! This Broccoli Rabe is...Bitter

coco99 | Oct 21, 2010 06:20 AM

I know that broccoli rabe has a bitter reputation but the past couple times I've made it- it really has been inedible. Is it the white wine?
Basically my preparation is blanching for two minutes in salted water, then sauteing some onions in evoo, fresh tomato, garlic, then adding white wine and letting that cook down for a couple minutes, then adding my broccoli rabe and red chili flakes, sauteing everything together for two minutes before serving. Thoughts? Suggestions? We're running out of vegetable sides, so any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks!!
