Why I Love This Recipe

Penne with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Broccoli...a perfect dinner for a busy weeknight.

Ingredients You'll Need

8 ounces of whole wheat pasta (or use regular pasta if you'd prefer)

4 cups broccoli florets

1/2 cup oil packed sun-dried tomatoes

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1/2 cup fresh basil

1 teaspoon salt


1. Cook pasta according to package directions.

2. Add the broccoli to the water with the pasta the last 2 minutes of cooking; drain.

3. In a medium saucepan, saute the garlic and crushed red pepper in the reserved oil from the sun-dried tomatoes for about 3 minutes. Stir in the basil. Add this mixture to the pasta and broccoli mixture and toss gently to combine. Sprinkle with fresh parmesan cheese, if desired.
