My favorite way to prepare clams is to steam them. In this recipe, I added broccoli rabe, which absorbs some of the clam liquor as it cooks.

In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium high.

If there's one thing we know at the Daily News, it's pizza. Specifically, free pizza. So we tossed a couple pies on the ol' expense account to see what Joe Stanfa is serving up at his new - and rather affordable - restaurant in Grays Ferry. Our critics, who were guaranteed anonymity, gave the pizza mixed reviews. But that doesn't mean we won't return to try the chicken cutlet with roasted peppers, broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. Reporter #1: "This pizza is like the button men of old, before wiseguys tried to become celebrities - solid but not flashy.

Services have been set for Al Martino, the popular South Philly crooner who later in his career played the Sinatra-esque Johnny Fontane in the 1972 hit movie The Godfather . Mr. Martino, 82, whose birth name was Alfred Cini, died Tuesday at his home in Springfield, Delaware County. Alfred Cini said his father collapsed after suffering an apparent heart attack while cooking, and emergency medical technicians couldn't revive him. Mr. Martino loved cooking and singing, his son said, and was delighted when people raved about his food.

Were it located in the genteel wilds of Birchrunville, Chester County, say, or Malvern, even, green farmlands lapping at the doorstep, Osteria's poignant gesture to fresh and local might not be that much worth the noting. But for those who haven't had occasion to visit, let us set the scene: The casual sister to Marc Vetri's eponymous Vetri is just a handful of blocks north on Broad Street from Vine, though still south of Temple University, which is to say in a stretch of faded urbanity to which the noun revival cannot (yet)

Some would argue that you don't mess with perfection. The South Philly roast pork sandwich with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone, for example. Or that Americanized Chinese staple, the egg roll. But Ben Byruch artfully combines the two at his ambitious South Street small-plate BYO, Sonam. For his "Italian egg rolls," Byruch shreds pork and broccoli rabe, layers in provolone, and adds roasted yellow peppers in an egg-roll wrapper. The rolls are deep-fried, cut on the bias, and served with a side of sun-dried sweet-chili sauce that balances the bitterness of the broccoli rabe and tempers the provolone.

A savory pie is an easy one-dish entree, made even easier with a refrigerated pie crust. Any number of ingredients - fresh or leftovers - can be bound in an egg-based filling. Prepare a soup, salad or vegetable side dish during the "walk-away" baking time. Double the recipe and stash the extra, once cooled, in the freezer for a time-crunched future meal. (Thaw the baked tart in the refrigerator and reheat at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Or microwave it on low for 3 minutes to thaw, then 3 minutes on high to reheat.
