Who doesn’t love a good one pot meal? This pasta is extremely easy to prepare, has a good hearty serving of broccoli and is smothered in cheese. Really how could you go wrong?
Cheesy Pasta & Broccoli: Serves 4
1.5lbs Frozen Broccoli
1C Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese
1/2C Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add in the pasta, and when it is half way done cooking add the broccoli to the water, bring back up to a boil and finish cooking the pasta. Drain the water from the pot reserving 1/2C of the pasta water on the side, then add the cheeses to the dish and with the back of a spoon work the cheese through the pasta. If the cheese is too thick for you add the pasta water to the dish and stir to thin it out. Personally I didn’t use the pasta water and thought it was just fine. Enjoy!
