Broccoli N' Tomato Pasta

Total Time

This is a great, light pasta dish with very little oil. Please note to adjust the cooking time if using pasta other than spaghetti. I often omit the olives due to a daughter that doesn't like them and it's still fabulous. You can also adjust the amount of red pepper flakes to your liking. Another variation is to use cherry tomatoes, halved instead of regular tomatoes. My family really enjoys this dish, hope you do too!!

I enjoyed this for dinner this evening. I discovered I didn't have enough spaghetti, so use fettuccini. I halved the recipe, and used slightly more Parmesan cheese. Thank you!
