Pasta ai Broccoli


300 gr Broccoli florets and trimmed stalks 
pasta Linguine (in my case, but any other kind of paste works fine)
3 cloves of garlic
olive oil


Step 1:- add approx 1-2 l water, season with salt and bring to boil into a deep pan
Step 2:- add the broccoli and pasta together and cook till the pasta aldente
          -while broccoli and pasta is cooking, into a saute pan add olive oil and gently fry the finely chopped garlic
Step 3:-drain the pasta and broccoli through a sieve and save one cup of that starchy water to add later in your sauce 
Step 4:-toss to combine well and if needed add a bit of starchy water if the sauce is too dry 
Serve with grated Parmesan.

Excellent, this is actually one of my favourite recipes- but I usually use Orrechiette or Penne :D
