Ingredients

  • 1 cup - Pasta
  • 1 medium sized floret (about 3/4 cup) - Broccoli
  • 4 - Garlic cloves, chopped finely
  • 1 tsp - Chilli flakes
  • 1/2 tsp - Pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp - Oregano / Italian seasoning (optional)
  • 1 tbsp - Pistachios
  • 2 tbsp - Cheese
  • 1 tbsp - Olive oil

How to Make Broccoli Pasta

  • Boil water (just enough to immerse the pasta) in a pan.
  • When it starts boiling, add the pasta with a little salt and 1/4 tsp oil and cook until soft yet firm enough to bite.
  • Cut the broccoli into small bite sized florets, soak in hot water (just to remove worms if any) and drain.
  • Bring water to boil, add the broccoli florets and cook until soft, yet crunchy. Keep aside. Reserve the stock water.
  • In a pan, dry roast pistachios until crisp.
  • Grind to a coarse powder and set aside.
  • In a pan, heat oil, add chopped garlic and chilli flakes and fry till golden brown.
  • Then add broccoli and pepper powder and saute till it shrinks and changes colour.
  • Add the cooked pasta along with oregano.
  • Sprinkle the broccoli stock water (no need to add fully) and give a quick stir.
  • Then add pista powder and cheese, give a quick toss and switch off the flame.
  • Serve hot with a generous garnish of cheese.
