  • Step 1

    You will need:
    3/4 cup Virgin Olive oil
    3 Tbl spoons of chopped garlic
    2 tsp of red pepper flake
    A box of your favorite pasta.
    Fresh broccoli florets
    2 cups of Grated Parmesan Cheese - make sure it's got a great flavor.
    A box of your favorite pasta....any kind will do

  • Step 2

    Mix the oil, the garlic and the red pepper flake together in a small pot, on the lowest possible flame warm enough just to infuse the flavors. Stir a couple of times. Leave this warming until the pasta is done. If your oil gets to hot, you'll have crunchy hard garlic (yuck)

  • Step 3

    In a large pot, add your water and salt to boil.

    Start prepping your broccoli by breaking the florets into bit size pieces.

  • Step 4

    When the water is ready for the pasta, add it to the water and cook it as directed.

    Add the broccoli to the boiling pasta for the last 2 minutes of the cooking time, carefully drain away all the water.

  • Step 5

    With the pasta and cooked broccoli in the same pot that you cooked it in, add the warm olive oil mix and stir well.

  • Step 6

    Add the cheese a cup at a time, use a large spoon to mix it well.

    (if you add all the cheese at once, you will end up with a HUGE cheese blob.)

    You can add more cheese or go with less...whatever you like.

    Enjoy!
