This is something I was raised on by my Italian grandmother, so the taste is very familiar to me, and is like comfort food. I made this pretty much as posted, using 2 bunches of broccoli and 16 oz. of ditalini (while still only using 6 cups of water). I didn't have bouillon cubes, so used powder in its place. I also added some crushed red pepper flakes. The end result was just like I remembered. I served this with some garlic and cheese sausage, but will happily eat the leftovers on their own. The parmegiano cheese is a must. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
Nice dish. I had a lot of broth left when the pasta was done. So i just drained some of it. I added some red pepper flakes instead of black pepper. Very easy to make. Thanks! Made for PAC Spring 2009.
it was a very healthy feeling dish.... i did feel it was a little lacking in flavour but it is a substantial hole-filler. would definitely recommend some lemon juice or even chicken stock for those non-vegetarians.
I used broth instead of the boullion cubes as I had some of my own in the freezer. Nice blend of flavors and definitely different from the average pasta recipes. It paired well with the stuffed chicken.
very nice tasting dish. simple to make too. made this for myself and my 3 yr old daughter who also loved it. the only sub i did was rather than using the cubes i used organic chicken broth. i also added a squeeze of lemon to the broccoli. this is a dish that could be eaten every nite and not get tired of it. thank you for sharing.
Very enjoyable dish. I added some butter instead of olive oil to finish. Thanks for sharing.
Very tasty pasta dish! I used broccoli rabe instead of regular broccoli, because I prefer it in pasta dishes...and chicken broth instead of boullion cubes and water, because that is what I had on hand. From one Sicilian to another...thank you :) I will definitely make this again!
