Directions

  1. - Heat the pine nuts in a pan (no grease) for a few minutes (they'll get dry and more crunchy)
  2. - Cut the Prosciutto slices in small strips.
  3. - Peel and mince the onion ; fry it in 2 Tbs. olive oil
  4. - Prepare the broccoli in very small bunches; boil them in salted water for 5 minutes.
  5. - Boil the pasta in salted water and strain them when they are still a little firm; spread 1 Tbs.of olive oil and mix.
  6. - In the onion pan, pour the pasta and broccoli and add pepper; saute for
  7. 2 minutes (turn gently) then spread with the prosciutto and pine nuts.
  8. - Serve right away with the parmesan cheese on the table.
  9. Hint : you may choose to put the parmesan in the pasta before the pine nuts and ham and turn. I prefer to do that because the parmesan cheese melts better in the dish when it is done.
