Quick Friday Night Dinner | Broccoli and Garlic Pasta

Looking for a quick dinner? You just may have these ingredients around the kitchen.


  • 2 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 Shakes red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 or 2 bunch of broccoli, chopped (or a bag of frozen broccoli)
  • Whole wheat pasta, cooked – enough servings for each person
  • Parmesan cheese, optional

Heat a large frying pan on the stove, add olive oil, garlic, and pepper flakes. Saute until fragrant but do not allow the garlic to brown. Stir broccoli into pan and coat with oil and garlic. Cook broccoli, mixing occasionally, until the color changes and the pieces are tender. Add extra olive oil if needed. Mix the pasta and with the broccoli, top with pepper and, if you prefer, parmesan cheese.
