Pasta and Broccoli with Pecorino Romano Cheese
Adapted from Skinny Taste
12 oz pasta ( I used Barilla Plus elbow, but any other short pasta will work)
6.5 cups broccoli florets, cut into small pieces
4 garlic cloves, smashed and chopped
1/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Once the water boils, add both pasta and broccoli. Cook according to the directions on the box.
4. After garlic is cooked, reduce the heat to low and add back in the pasta and broccoli.
5. Add in the rest of the oil, cheese, and salt and pepper and 1/2 cup of pasta water. Mash the large pieces of broccoli well so that it coats the pasta, adding in more reserved pasta water if necessary.
