Ingredients
  Rape 4 Pound
  Boiling water 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Olive oil 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), mashed
  Hot pepper flakes 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Lemon juice 2 Tablespoon
Directions

Discard the tough outer leaves.
Cut off any tough stems.
Cut the leaves and stems into 2-inch pieces.
Wash in several changes of water and drain.
Drop the rape into a large saucepan filled with rapidly boiling water.
Bring back to the boiling point and immediately drain the rape.
Reserve the drained liquid.
Heat the olive oil in a heavy saucepan.
Add the garlic and hot pepper and cook for 1 minute.
Add the rape and season with salt.
Cover tightly and simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes or until tender.
Stir frequently and check for moisture; you may have to add a little of the reserved liquid, 2 tablespoons at a time, to prevent scorching.
Turn into a serving dish and toss with the lemon juice.
