Ingredients

1 lb. frozen cavatelli
3 small heads of broccoli, cleaned and cut into small pieces
4 cloves of garlic, peeled & cracked (smashed with the side of a knife)
crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
extra virgin olive oil


Heat a liberal amount of oil in a large saute pan that has a cover, it should be enough to cover the bottom. Add garlic and crushed red pepper and cook for about 1 minute. Add broccoli and toss in garlic infused oil. Let it cook for a few minutes to absorb the flavors add more oil if needed. Season with salt and pepper. Add a couple of tablespoons of water and cover to finish cooking. Meanwhile, cook cavatelli in a large pot of salted water. When pasta is done reserve 1/2 cup pasta water and drain. Toss with broccoli and add 1/4 cup of water and more if needed to bring it all together (and so the pasta isn't just swimming in oil.)
