My partner loves green beans, but I love broccoli. There was some lovely young broccoli at the market on the weekend. Having decided we wanted a light dinner this evening, I turned those broccoli stems into a very simple, delicious pasta. It was super easy.
|3||small heads of new broccoli|
|1||teaspoon||fresh parsley, chopped|
|sea salt and fresh ground pepper|
|parmesan cheese, grated, to serve|
Cook pasta according to packet instructions. Meanwhile, prepare the broccoli by cutting all florets from the stalk. Remove the skin from stalks, chopping some and grating others. Diversity of texture is good. Melt butter in a frying pan. Add garlic, chilli, dried herbs, and a grinding of black pepper. Cook on medium heat till garlic begins to soften. Add broccoli, and sauté for a few minutes. Increase heat to high and add white wine. Add drained pasta to pan, stir through, crumble in goats cheese and add fresh herbs. Season liberally. Serve with grated parmesan cheese.
