Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 1
  • 1 small head of broccoli, florets only, cut into small pieces
  • 2 ounces whole wheat spaghetti, cooked, pasta cooking water reserved
  • 2 cloves roasted garlic
  • 2-3 tablespoons grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • extra virgin olive oil, to taste
  1. Cook broccoli in the microwave until tender crisp, about 4 minutes. Toss broccoli into the food processor along with ¼ cup of the reserved pasta cooking water and the garlic. Pulse until finely chopped. Add cheese and pulse until combined. With motor running, add olive oil as desired, then toss sauce with cooked pasta and saute for one minute. Serve with extra cheese as desired.
Assuming you cook your pasta in heavily salted water like you should, adding the salted pasta cooking water will add plenty of salt to the dish, so don't add more!
