Orecchiette Pasta With Broccoli

Made this for a friend who wasn't able to eat regular food and this was better than puree. What I did was mash the broccoli up but she wanted hot sauce and I opted for the chili it wasn't that hot!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a deep, wide sauté pan.
  2. Add the garlic and cook until golden; add the chili and keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, bring 6 quarts of water to a boil.
  4. Add the orecchiette and salt, and after 10 minutes, add the broccoli.
  5. Cook until the orecchiete are “al dente”, about 10 more minutes; drain, but not too thoroughly: you want to leave a little of the cooking water clinging to the orecchiette.
