Ingredients

  • 11 oz dry pasta of your choice (try to get good-quality pasta. Goods brands are Barilla or De Cecco. Can use gluten free pasta too.)

  • 2 large heads of broccoli (about 14 oz)

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 peeled cloves of garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon pepper or red pepper flakes

  • Salt to taste

  • Parmesan cheese for serving

Preparation

  1. Wash and cut the broccoli heads into smaller pieces about 1 inch long

  2. Cook the pasta in a large pot according to the bag’s instructions BUT:

  3. About 2-3 minutes before the pasta has finished cooking, add the broccoli pieces into the water to cook them

  4. Finish cooking the pasta and broccoli and then drain it

  5. While the pasta is draining add the olive oil, pepper, minced garlic, and salt into the original pot you had boiled the pasta in

  6. Let the “sauce” cook for about 5 minutes to infuse the flavor. Stir occasionally. Once this is done, turn off the heat under the pot.

  7. Put the drained pasta and broccoli back into the pot and mix around to evenly coat the pasta with the sauce.

  8. Add parmesan cheese once served, if desired.

  9. Enjoy!


Storage Indications: You can store the pasta in a tupperware and microwave it to reheat.
