This Broccoli Spaghetti Pasta dish is great because it’s quick, easy, fresh and full of flavor.
Did you guys like yesterday’s post full of beautiful heads of broccoli fresh from our rooftop? Then I guess you wouldn’t be surprised to see a broccoli recipe posted today!
This Broccoli Spaghetti Pasta hits all the right spots for dinner. It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s fresh. It’s full of flavor. Not only is there broccoli in here but we also add in our favorite sugar snap peas. The peas aren’t cooked so they supply a nice crunch which screams Summer! The broccoli is simmered in chicken broth and then it’s added to the pasta to just coat everything in flavor.
This is a great base recipe as you can easily replace the broccoli with cauliflower, or the sugar snap peas with fresh carrots. Use your imagination!
