I cooked my pasta and broccoli first. While the pasta and broc were draining, I made the sauce in the pasta pot. Then tossed the pasta and broc back in to the pot to finish putting it together. Garnished with some fresh basil from my garden. Voila! Simple, delicious, and only one pot to clean.
This is such a simple and great recipe! I agree with the other reviewers that you need to add more lemon. Two variations I made were to add mushrooms to the olive oil and lemon sauce. The mushroom packs the zest of the lemon juice even more and I used penne pasta made from lentils. It gives the dish an earthier taste. Love it love it love it! My husband also loves it! Thanks for posting this recipe!
This is very good side dish. I served it with Alice Chicken, from this site. I will make again but either increase the broccoli or decrease the pasta for a better balance. I also cooked the broccoli for 3-4 min. Everyone loved the sauce, made exactly as the recipe. .
This was very good! My family ate it all up. I added chicken to it like the other reviewer. With the addition of the chicken, I think it could use a little more lemon juice next time.
I added grilled marinaded chicken strips, another garlic clove and crushed red pepper - it was great! Next I want to try it with grilled shrimp.
My husband and kids loved this recipe! I added grilled chicken to make a meal. Next time I will try shrimp with a little more lemon.
