Wash and trim the ends off of one bunch of fresh rapini. Heat a large saucepan to medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp olive oil, 1 clove minced garlic, 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning and 1/8 tsp of chili flakes (optional). Sauté for 1 minute.
Add the washed and trimmed bunch of rapini to the saucepan. Add 1/2 cup of water and cover with a lid to steam for about 5 minutes.
Remove lid. Rapini should be wilted. Mix rapini with garlic and chili flakes. Let simmer for another 5 minutes with the lid off so the water can evaporate. Remove from heat and serve when stalks of the rapini are softer but not mush. A fork should be able to go through the stalk easily.
