DIRECTIONS

  • Place in a dutch oven or a large deep frying pan:
  • Chopped onion and garlic and saute in the olive oil for approximately 10 minutes but do NOT brown. (just a slightly golden color will be good).
  • Clean and trim broccoli and cut into 2" pieces.
  • Add cut broccoli to garlic and onion.
  • turn down flame and add 6 cups very hot water and bullion cubes, & salt & pepper.
  • Simmer until broccoili is still slightly crunchy and add pasta.
  • Add more water if needed while pasta is cooking with the broccoli as it can absorb alot of the water.
  • cook until pasta and broccoli are both tender and most of the water is absorbed.
  • turn off the heat and sprinkle a small amount of extra virgin olive oil and approximatly 1/2 cup parmegiano cheese. Toss and serve.
  • You can garnish with lemon if you like.
