This quick, yummy, fairly healthy recipe came from the internet (can't remember the site) and I modified it to our families taste. My Italian hubby grew up on this (although I make it a tad differently). We eat it as a main dish, although you could easily eat it as a side for any kind of meat or fish. Adjust the broth to your preferences, my husband likes it soupy, so this version has a lot of broth.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet heat oil and butter; gently brown the garlic. Add broccoli; stir gently. Add chicken broth, cover, bring to boil, lower heat and simmer until broccoli is al dente.
  2. Add the broccoli mixture to the rigatoni and flavor with basil, parsley, pepper and cheese. Stir until combined. Serve with cheese to sprinkle on top. Enjoy!
