*broccoli and garlic pasta

Pasta With Broccoli & Garlic

 1 head broccoli, washed, cut, trimmed into bite size pieces

1/4c fresh parsley/ basil *optional

1/4c +1 T XVO

1T vegan butter

2 cloves garlic, smashed and minced

¼ fresh chili pepper, minced or pinch red pepper flakes

1/2t pink salt

1/4t fresh ground black pepper

1 pound of preferred pasta- I use Gluten Free.

In a large heated frying pan over medium heat, add the 2T of olive oil, hot pepper and 1/2 of the garlic and sauté just until golden, not browned. Add the broccoli and toss in the pan until well incorporated and turns bright green and tender- about 5-10 minutes- Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside off heat.

In the same pan, add the remaining olive oil, remaining garlic and sauté just until golden. Add the cooked pasta and season with salt and pepper. Add the cooked broccoli back in and toss in the butter.

Chop up the fresh parsley or basil just before serving and toss into the mix.

Serve immediately topped with vegan parmigiana or nutritional yeast.

FRICKEN DELICIOUS.
