Capellini with Broccoli & Garlic

Capellini with Broccoli & Garlic

4.67 3

The combination of frozen broccoli (you add it in frozen- no need to thaw) and quick-cooking capellini gets this recipe to the table super fast.  The pasta cooks right in the garlicky broth, absorbing all of the flavor and also making this a one-pot dish.

    Pasta with Asparagus

    Searched for vegetarian meals and this came up. Not bad but not vegetarian since it uses Chicken Stock. to make it vegetarian use Vegetable stock. Use fresh garlic for a cleaner taste.

    Pasta with Asparagus

    This is an excellent recipe! This is so easy to make and everyone loves it. You can substitute broccoli if you don't care for asparagus.
