Homemade Italian Cooking with Cara
red pepper flakes
Place garlic and oil in a cold saute pan. Bring to a medium-high heat. The cold start allows the garlic to flavor the oil. When the garlic starts to brown remove it and save.
Add the broccolini, salt and red pepper. Saute for 1-2 minutes.
Add juice from lemon and water. Cover with a lid and cook another 3-5 minutes until bright green and just tender. Add the browned garlic and stir.
Can be served hot or at room temperature.
