    Anu's Note:

    Determined to create my very own, 100% original pasta recipe, which I could call "mine" in all honestly, I made this for lunch today and was so thrilled with its fresh, light taste that I just HAD to post it and let everyone know that I'm not as unimaginative as I though! :) Reserving the pasta water saves some of the nutrients of broccoli from getting wasted.

      Very nice dish. I doubled the recipe to serve 4 and used fresh chopped herbs instead of the dried. :)

      My whole family enjoyed this dish. It was easy to make with clear instructions. Can't wait to make it with garden-fresh ingredients this summer! Thanks for sharing.
