Combine crisp flowerets of broccoli or cauliflower with little pasta wheels for an easy but delicious side dish that contrasts crisp and al dente textures. Another time, try the hybrid vegetable Broccoflower instead.
4 ounces ruote, conchiglie or other dried shaped pasta
2 cups broccoli or cauliflower flowerets
1 tablespoon snipped fresh basil, or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
2 cloves garlic, halved lengthwise
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
2 tablespoons olive oil or cooking oil
1/4 cup grated Romano or Parmesan cheese  
pepper (optional)
Broccoli and Pasta in Garlic Butter Recipe at
In a large saucepan or pasta pot bring 3 quarts water to boiling. Add pasta. Reduce heat slightly. Boil, uncovered, for 12-14 minutes, or till al dente, stirring occasionally. (Or, cook according to package directions.) Immediately drain.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan cook broccoli or cauliflower flowerets and basil, covered, in a small amount of boiling salted water for 6-8 minutes or till crisp-tender. Drain well. In a large skillet cook the garlic in hot margarine or butter and olive oil or cooking oil for about 5 minutes, or till garlic is golden, stirring occasionally. Remove garlic from skillet and discard.

Add broccoli or cauliflower flowerets to warm skillet and toss to coat with margarine-oil mixture; heat through. Add hot cooked pasta and Romano or Parmesan cheese and toss to mix. Transfer to a warm serving dish. If desired, sprinkle with pepper. Serve immediately.
