Rotini con Broccoli

This recipe sounds so formal doesn't it? But in actuality, it's one of the simplest, easiest recipes to create at home and is the perfect quick meal on those hectic weeknights. AND, as an added bonus, it has less than 5 ingredients (well, not including standard staples that you probably already have at home!). Like I've mentioned before, I like to keep packages of broccoli florets in the freezer for just these times. Especially this week, when I'm focused on planning and preparing recipes for our Thanksgiving feast. :) It is a delicious, garlicky meal that is packed with protein and fiber that the entire family will love. 

Rotini con Broccoli
1 lb. Rotini Pasta
1-10oz. Pkg. Frozen Broccoli Florets, defrosted and chopped
6 Garlic Cloves, chopped
1 tbsp. Canola Oil
1/2 c. Pecorino Romano Cheese, grated
3/4 c. Low Sodium Chicken Broth

1. Cook pasta according to package instructions; set aside. 
2. In a large non-stick saute pan, heat the oil and add in the garlic and broccoli and saute until the garlic starts to release its' smell. 
3. Add in the cooked pasta, cheese and chicken broth and mix well. Serves 4.
