Nonno loves his fix of rapini. Rapini (also known as broccoli rabe) is one of the most popular greens in Italy.
This recipe of Rapini makes a great side dish with almost any kind of meat and potatoes either mashed or baked.
It is a great source of vitamins A, B, C, K, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and even some omega 3 fatty acid. A bonus is that Rapini also contains phytochemicals called indole-3-carbonyl (I3C) believed to be a powerful cancer-fighting component. (Source: SelfNutitionData & Chatelaine)
