Broccoli Garlic Penne Pasta

Broccoli Garlic Penne Pasta
For dinner on a lazy weeknight, pasta is my savior. I rarely make pasta with tomato or cream based sauces, as we prefer the simple and quick ones with no sauce. A pasta with no sauce is one in which olive oil is used as the base for the sauce, with garlic as the other main ingredient. So it is important to use good quality olive oil for these olive oil based pasta.
One of our most favorite pasta, and one I make often is spaghetti aglio olio. It's a simple pasta recipe flavored with a garlic chilly oil. Today's pasta recipe is a variation of that pasta with broccoli and Italian herb mix. This broccoli garlic pasta has become our family favorite now. Try this healthy and 15-minute pasta with the goodness of broccoli. Check out other pasta recipes here.
