Rapini with Pancetta

  • Serves: 8
  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Total time: 15 minutes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup diced pancetta

  • 2 bunches rapini, trimmed, washed and each bunch cut into thirds (about 2 inches in length)
  • ¼ cup chicken stock or vegetable stock
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

1. Heat a PADERNO Classic Non-Stick 9.5-inch Fry Pan over medium-high heat; add the oil. Sauté the pancetta 3 to 5 minutes.
