Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Stir garlic into the oil; cook and stir until softened but not browned, about 1 minute. Add the crushed red pepper and pepperoni; cook and stir to blend flavors, about 1 additional minute.
  2. Stir in the broccoli rabe, coating the leaves well with oil. Cover and cook until broccoli rabe is fully wilted and soft, about 15 minutes. Season with salt.
  3. Place a piece of cheese on cut side of each roll; fill with the broccoli rabe mixture. Serve warm.

I still can't figure out the relation to the dish from the comment above, but this is a fabulous traditional grinder. Add prosciutto (aged Italian ham) and it's over the top!!

Mine ended up tasting like a lot of pepperoni in a cheap sandwich. However, I didn't follow the directions. I used about double the pepperoni and left out the red pepper flakes. I also used beet greens instead of the broccoli and mozzarella instead of the provolone. I think all the substitutions would have been okay if I would have kept the ratios the same. Keep the ratios correct.
