easy prep time 10 mins | cook time 15 mins | SERVINGS 6


    1 pound broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces
    1 pound LaFe Pasta (any variety)
    1 cup olive oil
    6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional
    1 cup white wine or chicken broth
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1/2 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
    3 Tablespoons LaFe lemon juice



    Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil over
    high heat. Add a dash of salt, then add the broccoli
    florets and cook until tender, about 6 minutes. Drain
    the broccoli and set aside until needed.

    Bring a large pot of water to boil over high heat. Add
    a dash of salt, then add the pasta and cook until al
    dente, about 9 minutes for most pasta brands.

    While the pasta cooks, make your sauce. In a large
    saute pan, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Add
    in the garlic and pepper flakes (if using) and cook for
    1 minute, or until the garlic is fragrant and starts to
    shimmer. Add in the broccoli and wine (or chicken
    broth). Season with salt and pepper and simmer on
    medium-low for 8 minutes.

    Drain the pasta and return it to the pot. Increase heat
    to medium-high and stir in the broccoli sauce. Add
    the cheese and lemon juice and toss until well
    combined. Taste and add more salt and pepper
    if needed.
