Recipe Ingredients for Pasta con Broccoli

1/2 lb whole wheat spaghetti
3 tbsp olive oil
1/4 c garlic, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp thyme
1 c vegetable broth
1/2 c dry white wine
1/2 tsp salt
6 c broccoli, chopped
1 tsp balsamic vinegar

Recipe Directions for Pasta con Broccoli

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and prep all your ingredients while the water boils. Once boiling, add the pasta and cook per the package directions.

  2. Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Saute the garlic, red pepper flakes, and thyme in the oil for about a minute, being careful not to burn them. Stir in the broth, wine, and salt. Add the broccoli, turn up the heat to bring it to a simmer, and cover the pan. Cook for 8-13 minutes, depending on how soft or firm you like your broccoli, stirring occasionally.

  3. When the pasta is done cooking, drain and add it to the pan, using a pasta spoon to toss it around, making sure to get everything coated. Mix in the balsamic vinegar.
