Last Minute Pasta Dinner

Last Minute Pasta Dinner

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to packaged directions.
  2. While the pasta cooks, steam or saute broccoli, set aside.  I cook my broccoli for about 5 minutes so it is still firm and nutritious.
  3. Add olive oil to your pan on medium low.  
  4. Add the minced garlic cloves and saute to flavor the oil but not turn the garlic brown.  
  5. Add the lemon juice to the garlic along with a pinch of salt and a ladle full of the pasta water.  
  6. Add the beans and cooked broccoli. Give a good mix and remove from heat.
  7. Drain pasta when it finishes cooking.
  8. Add pasta, parmesan cheese and fresh basil in pan and give a good stir.
  9. Garnish with more parmesan cheese.
  10. Serve.
