Introduction

just plain yummy. just plain yummy.
Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    8oz linguini or penne pasta (1/2 pound)
    8oz fresh broccoli, chopped (1/2 pound)
    1 tablespoon and 1-1/2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
    1-1/2 teaspoons butter
    1-1/2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

** Chop and prepare veggies before starting. You will want to make sure the veggies are waiting for the pasta to finish.

Heat olive oil and butter over low heat. Stir in garlic and red & green pepper slices; saute slowly

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

Steam broccoli with 1-2 tablespoons water in microwave for 2 minutes. Drain broccoli and add to skillet. Saute broccoli and peppers until soft.

Toss vegetable mixture with hot pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. (After serving, I often put mine back in the microwave to continue melting the cheese a little longer.)
