Really Quick Broccoli Pasta

This is one of my best emergency quick dinner ideas and 2-in-1 veg plus carb side dish. Broccoli, pasta and not much else, it’s a little bit lemony, a little bit cheesy and a whole lot of yum. The broccoli is cooked with the pasta then stirred vigorously with sauce to make it juicy and saucy

Add this to your arsenal of broccoli recipes – this one is a keeper! If you dream of 12 minute dinner magic, you’re going to love this broccoli recipe as much as I do. It’s for all those days when: You’re staring at broccoli with not much else in the pantry, wondering how on earth you’re going to transform that into a totally delicious meal; You want to hide a LOT of broccoli in something that everyone will love. There’s 2 whole heads in this – but it definitely doesn’t seem like it! You’re after a quick side dish to serve with that charcoal chook you picked up enroute home, the sticky chicken thighs or crispy pan fried fish you’re making, those marinated pork chops or the garlic butter mushrooms you’re roasting in the oven.

  • 2 broccoli heads (BIG!)
