Easiest Pasta and Broccoli

We’re trying really hard to eat healthy things while under quarantine because the fridge and the sweets and the chocolate are calling to us!  This was good but not very flavorful so make sure to not skip the salt, pepper and Parmesan.

12 oz uncooked pasta

6 1/2 cups fresh broccoli florets

5 cloves garlic, pressed

1/4 cup Parmesan

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

salt and pepper

1 Cook pasta according to package directions.  During last 3 – 4 minutes of cooking time, add the broccoli.  Reserve 2 cups of pasta water then drain.

2  Return pot to stove and set heat to medium high.  Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and garlic.  Cook until golden.  Reduce heat to low and add pasta and broccoli back to pot.

3  Add remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil, Parmesan, salt and pepper and stir well to combine.  Add pasta water a little at a time to pasta as needed.

4  Serve with additional Parmesan on top.

1 1/2 cups = about 300 calories
