Pasta With Broccoli Recipe: Inside The Kitchen

Admittedly, this isn’t the best picture, but I couldn’t find my good camera. So, please forgive me.

I had a ton of broccoli and wanted to make a quick dish that didn’t dirty a ton of pots. Here’s what you need.

  • 5 garlic cloves zested
  • 1 small onion diced
  • Head of broccoli chopped
  • 1 pound of pasta
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chicken stock

Saute the onions and garlic in oil for a few minutes. Add salt and pepper and then  your chicken stock. Lower heat and cook for about 10 minutes. Careful not to burn. If the liquid looks like it’s draining too much – consider adding more stock.

Boil your pasta as usual. 5 minutes before it’s cooked to your liking, add the broccoli to the pasta water. Allow the veggies to cook with the pasta.

When you are ready, drain the water and place everything back in your pot. Add the oil, stock, onion and garlic mixture and salt and pepper one more time.

Toss and serve!

  1. It looks yummy! Thanks for the share.

    I have an off-beat question…I love the stove in the pic. Is it hard to keep it clean with the burners raised so high? I’m in the market for a new one, and the visual on yours is really appealing!

    1. you have to take the burners off each time you want to clean it. they are easy to remove though. 🙂

  2. alot of times i need a quick meal and i think i will add this to the collection…
