Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 head broccoli, washed and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried Italian herbs or 2 tbs. fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, etc)
  • 8 ounces whole wheat penne pasta
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, washed and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (2 cloves)
  • 1/2 tablespoon flour
  • sea salt
  • sharp, hard cheese for topping (like Parmesan)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss broccoli, oil, and herbs; scatter on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20-30 minutes, stirring every so often to avoid burning. I usually roast until the outsides are just slightly crispy.
  2. Cook pasta according to directions. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Add mushrooms and garlic and season very generously with salt. Stir frequently until the mushrooms have a lightly browned outside and are soft, buttery and tasty (about 15-20 minutes).
  3. Stir in the flour with the butter and mushrooms if there is too much moisture. Add pasta and stir until well combined. Stir in roasted broccoli and top with cheese.
