1. Prepare an ice water bath by filling a bowl halfway with ice and water; set aside. Fill a medium saucepan with heavily salted water and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook broccoli rabe until stalks are just tender, about 2 minutes.
2. Drain broccoli rabe and place in the ice water bath. When cool, remove from the ice bath, shaking off excess water. Slice on the bias into 2-inch pieces, pat dry with paper towels, and set aside. (If not cooking immediately, store in a resealable plastic bag lined with paper towels up to 1 day.)
3. Place a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add oil. Once oil shimmers, add shallots and cook until golden, about 3 minutes; add chili flakes and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add broccoli rabe and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 5 minutes. Taste, adjust seasoning as needed, and serve.
Beverage pairing: A red wine from Tuscany would be delicious with this dish. A Chianti would do the trick, but for something a bit more unusual, try a Rosso di Montalcino (made from Sangiovese), like the 2004 Casisano Colombaio Rosso di Montalcino.
