    Cactus Arm's Note:

    I like this recipe because it is fresh, light, low calorie, low sodium, it is eazy to make, is a meatless dish and it has lots of flavor (sweet, garlic, tomato, with a little spice). It is a good alternative to traditional spaghetti with tomato sauce, and makes for a good summer dish. I got this recipe from a "Seniors/ Cooking for Two" category cookbook I checked out from the library. You can make a lot of substitutions in this recipe too. You can substitute frozen broccoli(instead of fresh), fresh tomatoes (instead of canned), pine nuts (instead of almonds), and spaghetti noodles (instead of linguine). I switch on using fresh vs canned/frozen ingredients depending on what is more economical (sometimes I will buy fresh broccoli when it is on sale and blanch what I don't use and save it in the freezer).
