This is my aunt's recipe and is a family favorite. I add chicken for my must-have-meat man, but if you use protein pasta and don't forget the cottage cheese, you can still get a good amount of protein out of this meatless meal. I know it sounds weird, but Spaghetti & Broccoli is not the same without the cottage cheese! Refrigerates well and is even better the second day.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cook spaghetti and drain.
  2. Steam broccoli and drain. (You can also use a bag of frozen broccoli.).
  3. In a small sauce pan, heat olive oil and garlic over low heat. Heat until garlic floats, about five minutes.
  4. In a large bowl or Dutch oven-size pan, combine spaghetti and broccoli.
  5. Pour in oil and garlic and toss to cover. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve hot with a dollop of cold cottage cheese.
