Ingredients

  • 10 to 12 ounces pasta any short chunky shape, preferably whole grain (or gluten-free if you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 to 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 to 3 good-sized broccoli crowns cut into small bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cups sliced sun-dried tomatoes see note
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Dried hot red pepper flakes
  • Lemon or lime wedges for garnish optional

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta according to package directions, then drain.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and sautĂ© for a minute or two over low heat, just until golden.
  • Add the broccoli to the skillet along with about 1/4 cup water. Cover and steam over medium heat until the broccoli is bright green and just a little beyond tender-crisp. Remove from the heat.
  • Combine the cooked pasta with the broccoli mixture (along with any liquid remaining in the pan) and dried tomatoes in a serving container. Toss together and season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve at once, passing around dried hot red pepper flakes, and lemon or lime wedges if desired for embellishing individual portions.

Note: Since dried tomatoes are used generously in this dish, you may want to consider using those that are nice and moist but not oil-cured. But that’s entirely up to you.
