Cook's Notes

Broiling is one of the easiest ways to cook broccoli rabe: The stalks turn bright green and tender and the leaves get nice and crispy.

    I loved this without any changes. Don't be tempted to skimp on the olive oil.

    My mods: -add onion to the vegetable mix -saute first to cut broil time -add a dollop of harissa on top of the ricotta Enjoyed this atop a bed of linguine. Yum!

    Not good =( I tried this recipe last night and the mixture of textures and flavors wasn't my thing. The chickpeas are grainy and so is the ricotta, so a big part of the dish was in really mushy. The broccoli rabe came out okay but it takes WAY more than 2 minutes of broil on each side (5+min per side). I wouldn't personally recommend or make this dish again - just my experience though. If anyone else has made it and loved it, I'd like to know what tweaks to the recipe you made (if any!)
