good olive oil
garlic (I used 6-8 for 2 lbs)
salt and pepper to taste
I cut the stems off (but most Italians would say "your throwing half of it away"), and wash really good, then just toss it all together in a pot with about a half inch of water on the bottom, cover tightly and steam until it reaches your idea of tender, I just mine cooked very soft.
* I love mine tossed with cavatelli (aka bullets in my family)
** some lemon and red hot pepper flakes would be good too
*** you either love it of hate it and I LOVE it!!!!
