Broccoli Garlic Angel Hair Pasta Recipe
A beautiful side dish of broccoli and angel hair pasta with red pepper flakes is so delicious and so aromatic, but it doesn't take much time to pull together.
this recipe is very good and very similar to the one done at my mother's home in Sicily. Only difference, we cook the pasta in the same water the broccoli have been cooked in to give it extra flavor and stir fry some sun dried tomatoes and/or a few anchovies fillets with the garlic. We usually don't top it with parmesan but with roasted breadcrumbs.
I had to change from chicken broth because I didn't have any so I used cream of chicken- mushroom soup instead with a full can of water and I alsp cooked pieces of small cut up chicken with the garlic in the oil and butter it turned out great. I think it needed more spice so added more pepper and more pepper flakes. Parmesan cheese on top mixed in yum.
I can never get these garlic/oil recipes right! I thought this one would be different with having broth. I ended up with a soup like broth. My only change was adding in some sautéed mushrooms. I can't imagine it adding that much liquid! I finally ended up adding some half and half at the end, to change it up, and see if that would thicken the consistency. It did nothing. I ended up with white broth. On taste and texture, I would rate it about a 2. Being as I have never succeeded at one of these recipes I rated it 1 star higher. Maybe, someone will eat it.
Angel hair pasta is tossed with sauteed shrimp and steamed broccoli, and topped with a rich garlicky cream sauce.
