Heat oil in a small, heavy saucepan on medium-low heat. 2. Add garlic and barely simmer until garlic is just beginning to brown. 3. Remove and discard garlic. 4. Pour oil into a clean container and reserve, at room temperature, to use as flavored oil for frying and sauteing. Makes 1 cup. Broccoli Rabe: 1. Remove any tough outer or damaged leaves. Cut off the stems and tear the leaves into large pieces (about 3 to 4 inches). Wash in a sink filled with cold water. Shake off excess water. 2. Place broccoli rabe in a deep saucepan with cold water to cover by about 2 inches. Bring just to a simmer over high heat.

Immediately place broccoli rabe in cold water to cover to stop the cooking process. when broccoli rabe is cool, drain well in a colander and pat dry. 5. Cover with a damp cloth and refrigerate until ready to saute or add to pasta or sauces. NOTES : From Raos Restaurant Recipe by: Good Morning America
