This is sooooooo easy but yummy. Not too much to say about it except that it tastes good. You can add some cooked chicken and it will make a whole meal or you can use it as a side-dish. Either way it is tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the olive oil in a large skillet and heat.
  2. Add the minced garlic and cook slightly (do not brown the garlic).
  3. Add the frozen broccoli and cook about 8 minutes stirring occasionally, adding a little water now and then to make steam so that the broccoli cooks.
  4. If you are adding chicken, add it now.
  5. Add butter, salt, pepper, and the cooked pasta.
  6. Serve with Parmesan cheese at the table.

So quick and easy! I added more garlic, because I'm a garlic lover, and I had california medley instead of just plain frozen broccoli, so it had cauliflower and carrots in it too. And I did add the chicken. Delicious!

This was OK for us. We thought it was a bit bland. I followed the recipe as written using spaghetti. I did add another 2 tablespoons of butter, more garlic and a lot of salt and pepper. My family ate it but still thought it was missing something.

This was awesome! I had to use 2-3 tsp of garlic powder, instead of minced garlic. I served this as a side to Parmesan Chicken for my boyfriend, and he loved it! Thanks for such an easy dish to put together! I'll be making this again, for sure! :)
