That's what I do too, dump in the chopped broccoli to the pot of cooking pasta and drain them together. I am harvesting a broccoli this morning for this recipe!!

During the week-end I had the opportunity to go to the fresh produce market. There I bought some really fresh looking brocolli. Now I was faced with the challenge of finding something interesting to cook with it.

As I am a newbie on this forum, I think my timing was on the button. This morning when I read your post I thought : "Wow ain't I lucky because I love pasta too!".

Your recipe sounds fab and I can't wait to try it out for dinner tonight. Will let you know how it went down with my family.

Keep up the good work!

If you want to expand this, I thaw precooked shrimp and then throw them into the bottom of the collender. When I drain the water it heats the shrimp and I just toss.

Thanks for all you comments everyone! I'm happy this has been such a hit.

bd3k - great idea but no shell fish allowed in the house here (an only a few types of fish). I'm sure others will like that addition though!

I also do that with diced tomatoes so that they have a firm texture but are dish temperature. Works with diced avacados as well.

I just printed that recipe. I plan to make that in the next couple of days. It sounds delicious.

recipe, broccoli, garlic, pasta, rigatoni, spaghetti, ziti

Garlic Pasta with Broccoli This was tonight's dinner: Garlic Pasta with Broccoli 1 lb of pasta (ziti, rigatoni, or spaghetti) 1/4 cup olive oil (I use EVOO) 2 Tbsp butter 5-6 cloves garlic chopped fine Fresh bail and oregano chopped (about 2 Tbsp each) Red Pepper flakes (optional) Grated Parmesean cheese Broccoli salt and Pepper Heat the olive oil and butter over LOW heat until the butter melts. Add in the garlic and half of each of the basil and oregano and a few turns of fresh black pepper. Stir to combine. Leave on LOW to infuse the oil with garlic and herbs. Cook the pasta to al dente in salted water. While the pasta is cooking chop up the broccoli and cook to crisp-tender in the microwave. Drain the pasta. In a large bowl combine the pasta and broccoli. Pour the infused olive oil over the top and toss to coat. Add the parmesean and toss again. Dish the pasta into individual bowls and sprinkle each with some of the fresh herbs and pepper flakes (if using). 3 stars 1 reviews
