Pick up a copy of his latest collection of recipes and prepare to see vegetables in a whole new light. This broccoli rabe lasagna is a comforting, flavor-packed to feed a table of hungry vegetable-lovers. 

Broccoli rabe makes a stellar vegetarian lasagna. The leaves, tender stems, and broccoli-like buds have a distinctive pleasant bitterness and deep flavor.

I pilfer some of the cooked greens to make a garlicky pesto and then chop the rest and add it to the layers. It’s worth making the pesto alone to sauce spaghetti.
