Penne With Garlic & Broccoli

I love pasta dishes of any type. Here is a simple vegetarian pasta dish that is easy to make a great for both weekends and week nights.


8 Ounces Penne Pasta

4 Cups Broccoli Florets

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

6 Cloves Sliced Garlic

¼ Cup Sliced Olives

¾ Cup Vegetable Broth

¼ Teaspoon Kosher Salt

¼ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

¼ Cup Grated Romano Cheese

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the penne pasta and cook according to the package directions. Add the broccoli to the pot during the final 2 minutes of cooking. Drain the pasta and broccoli. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over a medium high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until the garlic starts to brown. Stir in olives and cook for 1 minute more. Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Stir in the pasta, broccoli, salt and pepper. Cook for 1 minute until hot. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese. Serve immediately. Serves 2
