Penne pasta with Brocolli

Submitted by: SHELBSYD

Number of Servings: 4


    8 oz of penne pasta (I used Trader Joe's High Fiber Pasta)
    4 cups of water
    1 cup low sodium chicken broth
    5 cups broccoli florets (I used frozen)
    1/2 Tbsp. basil leaves
    1/4 tsp. ground pepper
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    8 tsp. Parmesan cheese
    1 tbsp. lemon juice


In a large pot add water and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook until done, about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the broth, basil, black pepper, garlic and broccoli in a large skillet over medium heat bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook until the broccoli is tender-crisp.

Add the pasta and lemon juice and toss to coat.

Sprinkle the pasta mixture with the cheese.
