or, my favorite super simple dinner these days.
i realize this is sort of turning into a foodie blog lately, but that's not such a bad thing is it? with autumn just around the corner, i am already under its spell. every year when september hits, it shoos me inside. i want to hole up in my house and do all domestic things all the time. for instance, i learned how to knit the other night. hooray! and, of course, i'm cooking. whenever i can. like i'm going to run out of time before i get to make all the things i want to.
about this pasta.
roasted broccoli + parmesan pasta
1 pound broccoli, washed, dried, and chopped into florets
a few tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
4 cloves garlic, minced
whole wheat rotini pasta
preheat oven to 425 degrees. toss broccoli with olive oil and 2 cloves of the garlic, adding more oil if it doesn't all get coated. spread, in a single layer, onto a baking sheet. sprinkle with s + p. roast in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. while broccoli is roasting, cook desired amount of pasta. once broccoli is done, sprinkle with parmesan cheese. when pasta is done, drain the water, put it back in the pot and drizzle with a little olive oil and add 2 cloves of garlic. stir in broccoli. add more parmesan to garnish. (alter anything to your taste!)
