A very simple side dish that is a go to recipe in my kitchen.  Wonderful flavor and a simple process.


Ingredients:
  • 1 lb. Pastina noodles 
  • 1 lb of Broccoli - florets
  • 3/4 stick butter
  • Crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup fresh Parmesan Cheese
  • Fresh Parsley
  • Salt and pepper

Total time: 20 minutes



Start by bringing 6 cups of water to a boil in a medium pot.  Add pasta to to water and add salt to water.  Microwave the butter to soften but not completely melt.  After about 4 minutes, add the broccoli to the pasta and let cook together until both are al dente. 




Drain your pasta and broccoli mixture.  Add butter to a bowl large enough to mix all ingredients without to much spilling.  Add pepper flakes, parsley and pasta & broccoli mixture.  Mix thoroughly and add Parmesan last, mix again.  Serve warm.
