Mini Bowtie Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes and Broccoli

January 7, 2013

This is a recipe I found on the back of a pasta box. I have made it already 4 times. It is simple and easy.

Mini Bowtie Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes and Broccoli

4 servings

1 box mini bowtie pasta – 1lb
2 cups broccoli florets, cut in small pieces
4 tbsp olive oil
1-2 cloves of garlic, diced
2 pints cherry tomatoes
Salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese

Directions

Cook pasta as directed on package.
4 minutes before end of cooking time add in broccoli.
In a large skillet heat olive oil. Add in garlic and saute until slightly yellow.
Add in tomatoes and saute on high heat for 2 minutes until blistered, season with salt and pepper.
Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup water.
Toss pasta and broccoli with water and tomatoes with sauce.
Cook until sauce thickens. Top with Parmesan cheese and serve.

Enjoy!

I have made single servings for myself but it’s just as good.
