Ms Mofet's Pasta with Broccoli Aglio Olio (With Garlic and Olive Oil)

4 Servings
  • 1/2 lb (≈ 247g ) Flat pasta such as linguine or tagliatelle
  • 2 large crowns (≈ 707g ) Broccoli florets

  • 1/4 cup Olive oil (Olio)
  • Ground hot pepper flakes - to taste
  • Ground Sea Salt - to taste
  • Ground black pepper - to taste
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup chicken stock/broth
  1. Bring pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. Cook pasta to desired doneness and drain.
  3. In a large sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  4. Add the garlic and sauté slightly (just till fragrant).
  5. Add broccoli to the pan and cook stirring for 2 minutes.
  6. Season with salt, black pepper and hot pepper.

looks good, mofet. toss in a coupla halved grape tomatoes for colour and i'm right there whicha.

does it ever come out soupy at all?

3/4 cup chicken stock sounds like a lot of broth leftover if you cover it tightly to cook the broccoli.

do you uncover and let it reduce in any way before adding the pasta? or does the pasta suck up a lot of the stock?

As usual, msmofet, your dish looks scrumptious and healthy. I could almost smell the garlic!

Thank you bucky and Tim.

Yes it is a bit soupy sometimes when I add the full 3/4 cup but I like a little "sauce" and the cheese sucks up the liquid when I toss it before I eat it.

Another winner, mofet! My kind of nightly meal, that looks sooo good.

With broccoli, I like to steam covered until a poke into a stem with toothpick feels about right, and then finish cooking uncovered to let the remaining liquid evaporate.

Thank you. I like it saucy sometimes other times I cook uncovered to evap. I do most of my veggies in the microwave coved for a couple minutes with NO water added. The moisture from the veggies is enough to steam them. Corn and asparagus taste amazing when micro steamed.

I find the amount of sauce I like is directly proportional to the amount of bread I plan on eating

LOL I find that after I add the cheese, stir it in and by the time I get to the bottom of the bowl the liquid is gone and no need for sopping.
