Recipe Ingredients for Sunday Pasta ?: Cavatelli con Broccoli

16 oz Cavatelli
4 stalk, small (5" long) Broccoli
2 cup Chicken Broth
3 tbsp Parmesan, Grated Cheese
1/2 cup Olive Oil
5 clove Garlic

Recipe Directions for Sunday Pasta ?: Cavatelli con Broccoli

  1. 1 lb cavatelli (frozen is fine if fresh are not available)

  2. 4-6 large stalks of broccoli, using only the florets

  3. 1/2 cup olive oil

  4. Instructions

  5. In a large skillet, saute the garlic in the olive oil until golden brown. Add the chicken broth, being careful that it doesn?t splatter when it enters the oil. Once the broth is hot, add the broccoli and cover, cooking for 5-10 minutes until tender, but not soft. You want the broccoli to retain its bright green color. (If it becomes dark green, it is too well done, and therefore too soft. It will still be edible, but you may have to practice the timing so that the broccoli does not become mushy or desintegrate.) Add about 1 teaspoon of each salt and pepper, depending on your taste. Meanwhile, cook the cavatelli until al dente and drain it. Remove the lid from the broccoli, and mix in the cavatelli.

  6. Immediately serve in a warm bowl, sprinkled with parmesan. You can also make this into more of a broth based dish by adding extra broth. It is best eaten with a spoon, regardless of how much broth you add.

  7. 5 cloves of garlic, sliced

  8. 2 cups of chicken broth

  9. Salt and pepper

  10. Parmesan
