There are days that are just too crazy to incorporate a full meal into your schedule. These are the days I make this scrumptious side dish. Production is fast, quick, efficient and everyone loves it! You’ll not only be getting enough nutrients from your broccoli, but the carbohydrates make this comfort food. Plus, that delightful garlicky aroma gets everyone racing for the table!

16 oz. box pasta
2 cups frozen broccoli florets
3 tab. of butter
3 garlic cloves sliced thin
1 tab. of additional butter
Parmesan cheese shreds (optional)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Boil 2 quarts of water seasoned with 1 tab. salt. Once boiling, add your favorite pasta. Cook for time specified on box. In a small saucepan melt butter and add sliced garlic. Saut̩ for 3 Р4 minutes until garlic is soft. Add broccoli florets during the last minute of pasta cooking. Drain. Toss with garlic sauce, remaining 1 tab. butter, salt, and pepper. Top with parmesan cheese if desired.
