This was so simple, fresh and quick. Next time I'll probably throw it a bit more garlic. I only used 1/2 cup pasta water and will probably use more next time as well.Penne and Broccoli
From: Family Friends and Food
1-2 broccoli crowns, cut into bite0-sized pieces
2 Tbs. olive oil
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 dashes red pepper flakes
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions. During the last five minutes of cooking, toss the broccoli in and they will finish cooking at the same time. Drain, reserving 1/2 -1 cup of the pasta water.
While the pasta is cooking saute your onion, garlic and red pepper flakes in the olive oil. Toss the broccoli and pasta with the onion mixture. Add the pasta water as desired. Finish off by tossing with 1/2 cup parmesan cheese.
