Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 1 baguette, sliced
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe, chopped
  • 1 generous pinch red chile flakes
  • 1 can cannellini beans
  • 2 cup ricotta
  • s/p


  1. Slice baguette and put pieces on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil on both sides. Put the oven on to 350 degrees.
  2. Rough chop your broccoli rabe. Put on a pot of water to boil, and boil your broccoli rabe for 3-4 minutes, and then drain and let cool. Once it’s cool, squeeze the water out as best you can, and set aside.
  3. Put your bread into the oven for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, heat some olive oil, garlic, and chile flakes into a cast iron or pan over medium heat.
  4. After about two minutes, add in your broccoli rabe, then a little salt and pepper. Cook for about five minutes, then add your beans in, heating through.
  5. Pull out your bread, and spread with ricotta, then top with beans/broccoli rabe mixture. Do one last salt and pepper shake, then serve!
