Ingredients

3 cups broccoli, cut into florets   400 g
160 g gluten free/wheat free shells   2 1/2 cups
4 tsp olive oil   20 mL
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed    
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

Method

  1. Prepare the broccoli: clean and cut off the florets. Peel off any though skin of the stalks and cut them into small pieces. Blanch and drain the broccoli, then set aside, but keep them warm.
  2. To save time, the rest of the sauce preparation and pasta cooking can be done at the same time. Cook the pasta.
  3. In the meantime, heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Gently sauté the minced or pressed garlic 1-2 min, with stirring, until soft without letting it burn. Add the drained broccoli and pepper.
  4. Pour the drained pasta into the pan and mix with the seasoned broccoli. Adjust the seasoning and serve in the warmed dishes.
