Pasta, Cheese and Trees

Pasta, Cheese and Trees created by dicentra

This recipe originally appeared in Rachael Ray's Cooking Rocks! 30-Minute Meals for Kids, but I got it from Everyday with RR. This one is for MY little one! And her daddy. LOL.

ingredients

directions

  • Put a big pot of water on to boil for the pasta.
  • Separate the broccoli into small trees by pulling them apart. Trim off the woody stems of your trees so you can break them up.
  • Put the broccoli florets (trees) into a pot and add water enough to just cover the tops.
  • The broccoli should cook about 5 minutes once the water comes to a boil. Drain.
  • When the pasta water boils, put 4 pinches of salt into the pot and add pasta. Cook to al dente (that's Italian for "done but still with a bite to it"), according to package directions.
  • Pour oil and butter into a deep frying pan and heat it up over low heat. When the butter melts, add the garlic and cook it 5 minutes.
  • Add the broccoli to the garlic.
  • Drain the pasta and add to broccoli. Add the ricotta and grated cheese, and have the GH stir it all up in the big frying pan.
  • Add a little salt and pepper and taste the pasta and trees to see how the seasoning is.

    I did not enjoy this recipe. I can see why others might like it, but it was too bland for my taste. I may have cooked it wrong, because it got all clumped together.

    We love this! I use about 6 cloves of garlic, extra olive oil and extra ricotta. I also add crushed red pepper. Sometimes DH will have his with cooked chicken also.
