Cavatelli & Broccoli

It's only fitting that I talk about a pasta dish today, considering it's Frank's birthday.  Those who know him, as well as my regular readers, know that the man could live on pasta of all shapes and sizes.  No lie.

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to make it without blinking an eye.  I love having a man so easy to please!

If you've got 15 minutes, you've got plenty of time to make this for dinner.  If you've got a big crowd to feed on a tight budget, remember this dish.  If you love pasta, this is a keeper.

Happy Birthday to my partner in crime :)

Cavatelli & Broccoli
1 bag frozen cavatelli
broccoli (fresh is best, but frozen works too)
5 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more reserved
salt and pepper to taste
crushed red pepper
grated pecorino romano cheese

Cook cavatelli according to package instructions.  Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add garlic and crushed red pepper, then broccoli.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Saute until slightly softened.

Drain pasta and add to skillet.  Stir to combine over low heat.  Add more oil if necessary.  Add cheese, plus salt and pepper to taste, and take off heat.  Serve immediately or at room temperature.

Serves 3-4.

Perfect! I love simple pasta dishes and could also live on pasta alone. I also happen to love broccoli and think this is going to be my lunch today.

I have been making a ton of this the last couple of weeks. One of the staples in our house. So good and such a hit with everyone! Thanks for sharing your recipe! I have been skimping on the garlic. :-)
