- Broccoli Rabe with Garlic Recipe
In a nonstick fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until just golden, about 1 minute. Transfer to a small plate.
Add one-third of the broccoli rabe to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally and adding the rest after the first batch begins to wilt. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the red pepper flakes. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, then add the water. Cover and cook until the broccoli rabe is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl, top with the sliced garlic and serve immediately. Serves 4.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mark from Horrible pan!!!! I bought this pan about 3 years ago, will never ever buy another!!! Let me say that Calphalon's customer service has been top of the line in this matter. They have held to their warranty and replaced this pan 4 times without a fuss. Over the last 3 years this pan has never seen temps over low to med heat, never!!! It also has never come close to water if it was over body temperature. That all being said, this pan does not hold up to daily use. It starts to warp at about 3 months. If you do a lot of eggs as I do, omelets specifically, you'll see when it's about to happen as your omelet won't slide around the pan no more, it'll start to stick and burn in the middle, then comes the warpage. This isn't a plug for T-fal, but I have a T-fal red dot that I paid $19.00 years ago that out performs this pan by a long shot. At first, Calphalon did try to blame it on my glass top stove, but no where does it say NOT to use on a glass top stove. If your looking for something that looks nice hanging in your kitchen, this is your pan. If you want something that really does work and lasts, don't buy this one folks. And a big thank you to Calphalon for replacing this pan so many times. I am done though, tired of holding on to the box because I know what's coming, and tired of paying the return postage, I shouldn't have too!!!Date published: 2018-01-27Rated 4 out of 5 by 3littlepigs from Our go-to pans This is our first Calphalon purchase, and our first "high end" cookware purchase. We love these pans because they make cooking easy and enjoyable. Heat seems to distribute more evenly and nothing seems to stick to these pans! Sometimes we just wipe them off and reuse them. I only took off one star because the description says it is safe to use metal utensils but that is not true. We accidentally used metal tongs on one of the pans, causing a few scratches. We'll see how that pan holds up compared to the other one that has no scratches. Needless to say, I put away all metal utensils and we are now only using plastic, wood, or silicone ones.Date published: 2017-04-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Clairebear22 from Good Price Love this brand and these Pans! I love how easy these pans are to use and clean. So happy with my purchase.Date published: 2017-04-02Rated 4 out of 5 by lexusd from very nice Very nice set of cookware. I like that the top interchanges with both pans. I was a little worried that one reviewer( who had a glass top stove) said the bottom of the pans had bumps on them. I have a glass top stove and my cookware did not have the bumps. Thank goodness!. Heavier than most cookware, but a great buy on sale.Date published: 2017-02-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Mondo from Works better than lower-end Calphalon lines I bought this set in one of the pre-Christmas sales, and am VERY satisfied with it. I'm stuck with an electric-spiral-burner range, and have had problems using it with past cookware, even "standard" calphalon aluminum items. These pans work great on it! First, the materials and construction are excellent, and solve my most vexing electric burner problems. I've found that lower-end pans are often so light that the handle puts them off-balance, tilting a near-empty pan off direct contact with the electric heating element (this has even been a problem with some cheaper Calphalon pans). These Calphalon Elite pans are nice and heavy so they sit flat; their thick aluminum also helps dramatically reduce local hot spots where the elements are touching the bottom of the pan. The metal handles are sturdy, allow use in the oven, and remain cool enough to handle when used on the range. With all the big rivets, I'm sure the handles will remain secure even if the pan sees use as a weapon in hand-to-hand combat! The helper handle on the far side of the saute pan is a great size -- big enough to grab on to, but not so big it interferes with neighboring pans or items. I really like the vertical medium-high pan sides of the 3qt saute pan. They help reduce splashing outside the pan, but are not so high that it's hard to access the pan bottom with utensils. This pan is now my go-to pan for many tasks I used to use a fry pan or larger pot for, such as cooking bacon, making a batch of tomato sauce, etc. After a few months of use, the non-stick surface is still in great shape and works well (I've only hand-washed these to be on the safe side; they're easy to clean). Note that the instructions caution to avoid citrus-containing cleaners, presumably because the acid would damage the outer anodization. We'll see how long the non-stick lasts, but even if I have to buy a new pan after 2 or 3 years, the sale pricing means they're still a great deal.Date published: 2017-02-14Rated 5 out of 5 by ChateauxG from Loving them in Leesburg I enjoy trying recipes and learning new techniques. I finally allowed myself to update my cookware. Why did i wait so long!?!? Quality cookware. It allows the flavors of the ingredients to come through as opposed to oils and sprays used to prevent sticking.Date published: 2016-12-31Rated 5 out of 5 by JulsB from Great purchase! In love with these pans! Do yourself the favor and purchase them! I use them almost daily and they still look brand new. Cooks food great and doesn't stick to the pan.Date published: 2016-09-16Rated 4 out of 5 by Sasha247 from Excellent pans I cook everyday and needed new frying pans...these were a great purchase. I use very little oil in these, the non-stick is great. Easy to cleanup (they are dishwasher safe but I just wash them by hand since it's so easy). The only reason I took a sfar off is that they are a bit small. I can use it for making smaller dishes and etc, but not a large family meal.Date published: 2016-09-07
