Broccolini, Pine Nut and Feta Sauté

Broccolini ~ it is not just a fancy name for stringy broccoli.  The flavor, once sauteed, is milder than traditional broccoli and the steps are quite tender.  I added the sauteed pine nuts and creamy feta cheese to finish off this great vegetable side dish.

"A quick and easy way to prepare a flavor filled
side dish.  Delicious!"

INGREDIENTS:
3-4 bunches broccolini (enough for 4 portions)
1 Tbs. olive oil
1-2 garlic cloves, crushed and finely chopped
3 Tbs. pine nuts
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled

PREPARATION:

1.     Trim off the bottom 2” of the broccolini stems

2.     Place broccolini in a large skillet filled with 1/2" of water.  Cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes. 

3.     Drain water; add olive oil, garlic and pine nuts and sauté for 2 minutes.

4.     Plate the broccolini and sprinkle with feta cheese.

5.     Serve and enjoy!
