Broccoli al Frascati

White wine, garlic, and spices will make you a fan of these "little trees"

Serves 6

6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3 pounds (1 small head) broccoli, cut into spears
1 cup (225ml) Frascati or other dry white wine
1 tablespoon hot red pepper flakes
Grated zest of 1 lemon
Grated zest of 1 orange

In a 10- to 12-inch (24 to 30cm) sauté pan, heat the olive oil with the garlic over medium-high heat until just sizzling.

Add the broccoli and cook, tossing frequently and gradually adding the wine to keep the garlic from browning, until the stalks are tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

Add the red pepper flakes and zests, toss well and serve immediately.
