Did I tell you that I absolutely love pasta, especially when it’s cooked with garlic and Parmesan cheese. You can’t go wrong with those two ingredients. I use garlic with every dish practically. All you need is a nice green salad and fresh bread.
1 pound linguini pasta
1 pound fresh broccoli, chopped
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 pinch garlic salt
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
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 2 tablespoons water in microwave for 6-7 minutes.
In 10-inch skillet, heat olive oil and butter over low heat. Stir in garlic (more or less to suit your tastes) and red pepper slices; saute gently.
Drain broccoli and add to skillet. Sprinkle lightly with garlic salt and saute broccoli and peppers until soft.
Toss vegetable mixture with hot pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
