12 oz. rotini or some other easy to eat pasta
3-4 cups coarsely chopped fresh broccoli
3 cloves garlic pressed or 2 tsp. minced
3 Tbs. olive oil
2 tsp. dried basil or 2 Tbs. chopped fresh basil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup pine nuts or walnuts (optional...but I must have them in this dish...one or the other)
Parmesan or romano cheese for topping
Cut up and steam broccoli, boil pasta. When broccoli is done refresh under cold water.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a skillet. Saute garlic briefly. Add broccoli, basil, salt, pepper, and pine nuts (walnuts). Saute 3-4 minutes.
Drain cooked pasta and toss with broccoli mixture. Serve topped with parmesan or romano cheese.
