"I received this recipe from a friend who says it is from a famous Italian restaurant on "The Hill" in St. Louis. It is definitely a good one."

"My family loved this dish. I will add more of the cooking water next time as it got a bit dry as time went by. I wasn't quite sure about the directions. I also did not add the mushrooms as no one likes them."
"Wow, I feel like we're back in St. Louis and eating on "the Hill" (the Italian section of the city). This is a classic recipe for restaurants there. I used large shells in St. Louis tradition, increased the garlic, and omitted the mushrooms (kids). Letting it sit really lets the sauce soak in and flavor the pasta. My 13 y/o said it's his second favorite meal ever!"
"I am so glad to see this on here, I used to work for Kohner Properties and we had our staff meetings there and we had this one time and I fell in love. Thanks :)"
"This recipe is truly an authentic St Louis "Hill" recipe. It tastes identical to the many restaraunts. Another great variation is to add zesty italian tomato sauce making a "pink" sauce. It is another way to enjoy this popular pasta favorite."
"This is a great pasta recipe! I took it to a party, and everyone loved it! I substited large pasta shells for the fettucine. Either way, delicious!"
"This was the easiest and best tasting Pasta Con Broccoli I have ever fixed ! I didn't change a thing except used large shell noodles as that is what we like. Thankyou so much for the new and easy addition to my files !"
"Excellent, easy and quick. I used some leftover broccoli so this was even easier. Added some extra garlic and cheese as well."
"This was delicious. I couldn't believe the kids ate it - they actually devoured it! I also added a splash of white wine and added some grilled chicken. Delicious!"
"This almost tastes EXACTLY like the Pasta Con Broccoli I order from Cunneto House of Pasta on the hill in st louis! It's my favorite dish, and I can't bring myself to order anything else. I am sooooo glad I found this!"
"This was awesome! So easy -- a one-pot wonder! I made this after a long day at work, and it came together so nicely. I didn't add the mushrooms just because I didn't have them on hand. This is a great keeper for the weeknight repitoire!"
"I made this to go with chicken parmesan, and it worked perfectly. I did add just a bit (maybe 1/2 Tbsp. to a whole Tbsp.) of white cooking wine for extra flavor. Thanks for the Kudos at supper! :)"
"Awesome recipe! It tastes exactly like the one I remember in St. Louis. I cheated and used frozen chopped broccoli, but it worked out great. I just sauteed it in the pan with the garlic and butter first. I also added a little salt towards the end. Thanks for posting this Chris!"
