Broccoli Pasta in a Fresh Tomato Sauce

Broccoli Pasta in a Fresh Tomato Sauce created by Lori Mama

Determined to create my very own, 100% original pasta recipe, which I could call "mine" in all honestly, I made this for lunch today and was so thrilled with its fresh, light taste that I just HAD to post it and let everyone know that I'm not as unimaginative as I though! :) Reserving the pasta water saves some of the nutrients of broccoli from getting wasted.

ingredients

directions

  • Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
  • Add pasta and cook for about 5-8 minutes.
  • Stir in broccoli and cook 5-8 minutes more, or until pasta is al dente.
  • Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the water.
  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan and saute the chopped onion until translucent.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, salt, pepper, and 1/2 cup of the pasta-broccoli water.
  • Cover the saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Uncover, increase the flame to high, and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the most of the water has evaporated.
  • Remove from heat and season with basil, parsley and oregano.
  • Stir in the cooked pasta-broccoli mixture and mix well to coat.
  • Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve hot!

    Very nice dish. I doubled the recipe to serve 4 and used fresh chopped herbs instead of the dried. :)

    My whole family enjoyed this dish. It was easy to make with clear instructions. Can't wait to make it with garden-fresh ingredients this summer! Thanks for sharing.
