Recipe of the week

Pasta with broccoli. Very simple + fairly healthy one pot meal, but timing is important.

Ingredients (for 2)
200/300 g pasta (any type of shells)
1 medium head broccoli, cut into florets only a bit bigger than the pasta shapes
1 clove garlic, 1 dried red chilli - finely chopped
half glass white wine
150ml double cream

Cook pasta.
With 3/4 minutes of cooking time left, add broccoli to pasta pot.
Drain pasta + broccoli, saving 1 cup of the water
Put pot straight back on high heat, fry garlic + chilli in lots of butter.
Add wine + boil. Add cream + boil for 30 seconds.
Return pasta to pot + mix. Break up some of the broccoli to make a green sauce. Add pasta cooking water if too dry + check for seasoning.
Serve with lots of parmesan cheese.
