Garlic Broccoli Penne With Romano
  • 1 box mini penne (if possible) but any pasta will do
  • 2 t. minced garlic (in oil)
  • 3 heads broccoli with flowerettes cut off and cut up, as well as a generous amount of the stem
  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • salt
  • 8 oz. coursely grated romano cheese
  1. Boil penne in salted water until done.
  2. At the same time, over a low heat lightly brown the garlic in the olive oil.
  3. At the same time, steam the broccoli.
  4. When the broccoli is done, add it to the olive oil (in a LARGE SKILLET--I use my Pampered Chef Large Skillet) Stir to get the garlic infused into the broccoli.
