300 grams broccoli (4 cups)

If pan is too dry, add a bit of the water from the cooking pasta, a few tablespoons at a time, just enough to keep things from sticking. At same time, steam broccoli just until it is bright green and slightly tender.
Drain pasta and toss everything together. Serve with Parmesan cheese sprinkled lightly on top.
