Pasta with Broccoli
This is a classic italian meal. The preparation is simple, the meal is quite tasty and even healthy. Even the presentation is nice, with the green of the broccoli contrasts nicely with the pasta.
red pepper flakes
salt & pepper
We bring some water to a boil and add the pasta. We cooks for 9 minutes, per the directions on the box.
Meanwhile, in our dutch oven, we heat the olive oil. We add the garlic, broccoli cheese, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. We saute for a few minutes, allowing the cheese to melt and the broccoli to become tender and bright green.
As the pasta is cooking, we add some of the water to the broccoli to make it a little soupy. We drain the pasta when it is al dente in the colander. We serve it with the broccoli and some grated Locatelli.
