I made this as a simple lunch. I couldn't find any onions so I used a shake of onion powder instead. I also used cold spaghetti from the night before, and I didn't have very much parmesan cheese. In spite of all of these potential set-backs this made a tasty meal that I most definitly will make next time I have leftover spaghetti. :)
Didn't make any changes although I think I might have added double the amount of onion, got a bit carried away. Nevertheless, this was great, cooked this amount and used it as a side dish. I love broccoli my daughter calls it "green death" and will eat it only if it dressed up a bit. This was a perfect side dish, not too overpowering, just right. Will definitely be making this again.
Although I might argue about the balance between, onion and garlic ... the basic idea sounds great. Just rember that Cooking is a creative sport. The pasta should require about 8 minutes if thrown into rapidly boiling salted water
