      Thanks so much Maureen. I really love pasta, I’m such a carb girl. Can’t help myself.

    This is one of my favorite ways to eat pasta. I prefer this kind over a red sauce especially during summer. Great quick and tasty weekday supper for sure!

      Thanks so much Renee. I tend to like these types in summer too. It’s so cool to change them up according to whatever happens to be in season. I love summer.

    What an awesome and easy recipe Kim! LOVE and can’t wait to try it. I love going to the Farmer’s Market every Saturday!

      Thanks so much Isabel. I just love pasta with fresh ingredients. Our market is so tiny compared to others, but we have tons of farm stands here too. Usually on Fridays we hop in the car and head to the Leamington area. It’s so much fun, we just hit various stands and markets then stop at Point Pelee to play in the water for a bit. We usually stop somewhere for fish n chips too. It’s become a weekly summer tradition here.

    Good dish! I actually make something similar, but I use penne (or another substantial tubular shape) so I don’t have to cut up the broccoli as much (yes, I’m lazy!). I’ve also been known to throw in cherry tomatoes or diced red bell pepper. And I usually add a bit of Parmesan as well. One of those great dishes that you really can alter to suit your whim, as you say. Good stuff – thanks.

      I wanted to grate parmesan over top and then realized I was all out. You cannot get good parm in town, that’s a trip to the big, bad city. Such a bummer since I love cheese over pasta. I like the idea of penne too. I just picked up a massive bag of it with plans for penne alla vodka. I like the tomato and red pepper idea. I’m a pepper girl but mildly allergic to tomatoes so I have to add hubs into his separately. I can tomato sauces if they’re cooked down like mad, but raw tomatoes about kill me. I find this really odd, makes no sense that raw vs cooked makes a difference. It makes me scratch my head and wonder why quite often.

      Exactly. I swear if I could find a way to include them in desserts I would.

    I’m too much of a carnivore to not add in some grilled chicken, but this looks lovely :)

      Ha, I usually am but we try to eat meatless at least once a week. Sometimes twice. I don’t think I could ever go fully vegetarian or vegan, but it’s nice to mix it up on occasion. I do another version with chicken and heavy lemon, it’s divine.

    Yummmm! That looks perfect just the way it is! I always try to throw broccoli into anything I can too because it is almost the only green vegetable my husband will eat. I’m definitely going to make this for him! Well, for me too :) Pinned!

    I love dishes like this. So simple to put together but full of flavor. I generally add a little sausage, shrimp or even an egg to fill it out.

    This was great! I found this recipe and your site while trying to dream up ways of using the past-its- prime broccoli I had in the fridge, along with the shallots sitting near my garlic, so perfect! I more or less followed it as written, including your suggestion of cherry tomatoes, which I added along with the garlic. Before serving I topped each mounded plate with freshly ground black pepper, Parmesan and the parsley I’d accidentally chopped up the previous evening, thinking it was cilantro until I smelled it. Note to self: always smell what I think is cilantro or flat leaf parsley *before* chopping.

    Anyway, lovely meal, I really enjoy these simple dishes that rely on a nice combination of flavours rather than all kinds of fussing and expense.
    Thanks for posting :)

    This sounds good, my fiance doesn’t eat broccoli though unfortunately! Seems it would be good with spinach too though, and I like the suggestion to add some sausage (or maybe chicken).

    I came for both the beautiful photo and the pasta dish – this is similar to how I used to make it years and years ago but have forgotten. Thanks for reminding me what a fabulous combination and a simple yet delicious meal this is!
