Pasta with Broccoli, Garlic and Chilli

One pasta, 3 ingredients. Broccoli, garlic and chilli make this pasta dish sweet, strong and delicately spicy at the same time.


Pasta: linguine o spaghetti (200 g)

  • 1 small broccoli (250 g)
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced thinly
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli flakes

In your pantry:

  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt, pepper


Cut broccoli in half, separate florets in bite-seized chunks and leave out trunk. Wash carefully.

Cook broccoli about 5 minutes in simmering water or until tender.

In a frying pan, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil, add sliced garlic, 1 teaspoon of red chilli flakes and sautΓ©ed for 2-3 minutes on medium heat until garlic turn golden brown.

When broccoli is cooked, using a slotted spoon add it to the frying pan with a ladleful of cooking water and keep on low heat. Season with salt.


Bring the remaining cooking water to a boil again and cook pasta as indicated on packaging.

Once pasta is cooked, add it to the broccoli pan with 3 other spoons of olive oil and stir well to combine the flavours.

Serve with freshly grounded black pepper.

My advice: A simple, light and delicious pasta dish. Garlic and chilli enhance exquisitely the broccoli flavour.
