Broccoli Raab (or rapini) is one of my favourite vegetables. Broccoli Raab is green with leaves surrounding buds that resemble broccoli but the taste is quite different than that of broccoli. It has a more of a ‘bitter’ taste. Broccoli Raab is used commonly in southern Italian cooking.
Broccoli Raab Recipe from Rustico Cooking
There are countless recipes using Broccoli Raab, but our family favourite is Broccoli Raab with Italian sausage. The taste of the Broccoli Raab with Italian sausage, olive oil, garlic and a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes mixture is just too good for words. It also makes a delicious filling for panini and tastes amazing with pasta.
While I was browsing through the Rustico Cooking website, I came across the Broccoli Raab Sausage Pie with Mozzarella and Pecorino. recipe. How delicious would that taste? A mixture of Broccoli Raab, Sausage, mozzarella and pecorino cheese baked in easy to make dough?
This recipes makes enough for two pies and can be served for lunch or supper. We ate one pie at supper accompanied by a salad. The other pie was divided for school lunches. Although I have to confess, I had a slice for breakfast today. That’s how delicious this recipe is and will be added to our family’s favourite recipe list.
