Veronica's Broccoli Saute / Child Pleaser

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by jennifer in new jer

Made for my 3 yr old daughter at least 4 times a week upon her request. She and I share the same dinner so I am glad she likes it as I could eat it every nite and not get tired of it. Very simple, inexpensive and a good way to get younger children to eat broccoli without dousing it in processed cheese. The garlic takes on a very sweet flavor which makes it enjoyable to their tastebuds. You can use any pasta shape. She always helps me make this so everything is an estimate. Sorry!

This was good. I think it is better as a side than a main dish.
