Take a bite of broccoli rabe and you'll see why this member of the cabbage family, popular in Italy, should make more appearances on plates in the United States. Its peppery taste can't be duplicated (though it could be compared with the bitter bite of arugula), and since every part is edible, it's an easy way to add zing to dishes.

recipe

Cooking this stronger version of broccoli properly will ease much of its natural bitterness and yield an unusual and satisfying flavor. Try serving it with grilled Italian sausages and crusty bread. From the book "Lucinda's Rustic Italian Kitchen," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Wiley).
