    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water up to the boil, add broccoli florets, and cook for just 3 minutes; you need the water to cook the pasta, so do not drain; instead, remove broccoli with a large slotted spoon and place into a large serving bowl.
    2. 2
      Making sure the water is still boiling, add pasta; cook according to pkg directions (about 10 to 12 minutes), then drain well and add cooked pasta to the broccoli.
    3. 3
      While pasta is cooking, toast the pine nuts: place a small skillet over medium-low heat and add nuts to skillet; stir often--it will take about 5 minutes for them to toast; watch carefully so they do not burn; set aside.
    4. 4
      Now heat the butter and oil in a small skillet over medium-low heat; add both minced garlic and lemon zest and saute for one minute.
    5. 5
      Remove skillet from burner and add the salt and pepper, and the lemon juice; stir to combine then pour over the broccoli and pasta in the large bowl; toss.
    6. 6
      Taste pasta and broccoli mixture and add more salt or pepper if necessary.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle toasted pine nuts and parmesan over dish, and serve.

      This is a great recipe. I've probably made it a dozen times over the past few years.

      I love it! I get tired of cooking vegetables the same way all the time & pasta is a hassel because it always needs cream which goes bad so quickly so I never buy it. This recipe solved both dilemmas and didn't require any extra pans/pots. Thank you! Good and tasty. Btw I added some crushed red peppers, probably doubled the garlic (maybe even more than doubled it), and decided after adding the parmesan that it's better without it.
