My thoughts
The original recipe called to use anchovies, but I wanted to make this a vegan dish. I was making this recipe and started adding onion for some reason, so I just added them to the recipe. I find Broccoli Rabe (Rapini) to be very bitter and the sweetness of the raspberry vinegar helped to cut some of the bitterness but not that much. I will eat this again I just have to teach my taste buds to love rapini more.
