  1. Bring a saucepan of water to boil.
  2. While you are waiting for the water to boil, prepare the broccoli rabe: rinse it and chop it into 2 inch pieces and set it aside.
  3. Once the water boils, add the broccoli rabe to the boiling water and turn the heat off. Let it sit in the hot water for about a minute. Drain it and rinse it in cold water.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet and add the garlic and broccoli rabe. Cook the garlic and broccoli rabe until the garlic begins to soften which is about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in the beans and pepper flakes if you are using them; cook for a few minutes longer until everything is heated through
