Eat Something











{August 16, 2008}   Sicilian Broccolini

Just the side dish to the Hubs’ Fra Diavolo, it was delish and he’s sicilian so that means it is too, right? Well close enough anyway…

Ok, so this is not a great pic... but you really must eat this!! This girl LOVED it. So wish we had made a bigger batch actually (yep, I'm a piggie piggie oink oink... but so what it's a veggie!).

Sicilian Broccolini
2 T pine nuts
4 cloves garlic, chopped
4 oz sliced mushrooms
14 black olives (they were kalamatas because they are my favorite and he loves me, and he even counted out 14 for my obsessive self for the same reason)
1 bunch broccolini
some lemon zest and freshly ground sea salt (in unknown amts, sorry)
some grated parm

Saute the garlic, mushrooms and pine nuts in olive oil. Add the pitted and chopped olives after 2-3 min. Add lemon zest, lay broccolini on top and salt…cover with a little bit of water and put a lid on top until broccolini is bright green and done (just a few more minutes, maybe less than 5 but I dunno). Top with parm (I tried to toss some broc back on top for a pic… so you could tell what it was. LOL)

PS. The pic does this NO justice, so you should really make it yourself… I swear it was fab!! Not that I say that a lot or anything…
