Broccoli Rabe with Three Cheese

Broccoli Rabe or Rapini is now grown throughout the world. Rapini is available all year long, but its peak season is fall to spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Rapini has many spiked leaves that surround a green bud which looks very similar to a small head of broccoli. There may be small yellow flowers blooming from the buds, which are edible.
The flavor of rapini has been described as nutty, bitter, pungent, and "an acquired taste". I love this vegetables!! It's so easy to cook this simple dish in your own kitchen..This time I added 3 cheese and microwave with rapini..It's really taste creamy and cheesy!!


1 lb broccoli rabe (wash and bottom end remove about 2 inch)

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

1/2 shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup shredder mozzarella cheese

enough water to blanch


1:Prepare a medium stock pot with enough water at high heat to blanch broccoli rabe.When water rolling boil,add in wash and clean broccoli to blanch for 3 minutes.

2: Remove blanch broccoli rabe from the stock pot ,arrange on a safe microwave plate .Sprinkle mozzarella,cheddar and Parmesan cheese on the broccoli.Microwave high for 2 minutes or until all cheese melted.

3: Serve warm as side dish.
