Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

10-12 oz
ziti or penne pasta
1/3 c
low-fat milk or soy milk
1 large
bunch fresh broccoli, or about 4 heaping cups precut fresh broccoli florets
1/4 c
olive oil
4 large
cloves garlic, minced
1 small
jalepeno pepper, minced (optional)
1/3 c
grated parmesan cheese or soy parmesan
salt to taste
freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
If you have time, wash, cut, and trim the broccoli in advance; like the night before. If not, work on it, while cooking pasta. See Step 3.
2
Cook pasta per package. Drain pasta, then return it to the pot, and toss it with your milk of choice. Remove from heat, and cover.
3
If working on cutting the broccoli, make into florets about 1 inch in diameter, and take stalks and peel them, and cut into 1/4 inch slices.

Steam cut broccoli or precut florets, in a saucepan, with about 1 inch of water, for about 5 minutes, or until they are bright green and tender-crisp.
4
Heat oil, in a small skillet. Add garlic and the jalapeno pepper, if desired. Saute them over low heat for 1 minute, then mash them into the oil with a fork, and continue to sauté over very low heat, for 2 minutes.
5
Add the steamed broccoli and the garlic mixture to the pasta pot. Add the Parmesan cheese, season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve. Makes 4-6 servings.
