Ingredients

    1 pound broccoli
    8 ounces fettuccine
    1 tbsp olive oil
    4-8 large garlic cloves, minced
    1/4 tsp red pepper flakes or pinch cayenne
    2 tbsp pine nuts
    4 large tomatoes, diced or 1 28-ounce can chopped tomatoes
    1/4 tsp salt

Directions

Break or cut the broccoli into florets; peel and slice the stems into rounds. Place in a vegetable steamer and set aside. Cook the pasta in boiling, salted water until it is just tender. Drain and rinse quickly. While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a large skillet and sauté the garlic, red pepper flakes or cayenne, and pine nuts for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and cook over medium heat for 7 minutes. While the sauce cooks, steam the broccoli until it is just tender, about 5 minutes. It should be bright green and still slightly crisp. Add it to the tomato sauce. Spread the pasta on a large platter and top with the sauce. Serve immediately.

Broccoli is an excellent source of calcium as well as the antioxidant beta-carotene.
