With the colder weather there is nothing more that I love than comfort food. And there is nothing more comforting than a great pasta dish. My daughter’s favorite food is broccoli so I told her I would make something just for her this rainy day. So I decided to make Broccoli Garlic Pasta for her to make a hearty and healthy pasta dish. I did not have a ton of materials in the house since its been raining and freezing outside so I wanted to make something I knew I had everything for. Luckily, we always have thin spaghetti and I received a super pretty bottle of Le Stagioni d’ Italia 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil to review recently.

Broccoli Garlic Pasta

Ingredients:

1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup of broccoli florets thinly sliced

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 lb thin spaghetti cooked al dente

1 teaspoon minced garlic

Parmesan cheese, for garnish

Directions:

    In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil, garlic, broccoli, and pepper flakes over medium heat for about five minutes. Bigger pieces of broccoli may take longer.

Add salt and pepper to the broccoli mixture and turn to low heat

Add cooked spaghetti a little at a time to the pan. Toss in the broccoli mixture until well mixed

Add grated parmesan cheese to the top for garnish

Super yum and perfect. My teenager got the first bowl and immediately asked for more. He told me it was the best pasta dish he had ever had. I know he was just puffing up his mom but he did eat a lot of it.

That’s the thing about EVOO (extra virgin olive oil). It can be used in so many different ways. It fractures and penetrates food more than any other oil, which allows it to magnify the flavors of whatever it touches. 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil is perfect for adding to the traditional flavors of Italian cuisine! It’s made from Italian olives with a fruity and balanced flavor, but with low acidity. Harvested by cold pressing, the fresh picked olives are processed quickly for optimum flavor and quality. So you can make any dish better with some EVOO.
