Notes

Can I add meat to this recipe?
Yes, you sure can.  Chicken Broccoli Pasta or Sausage Broccoli Pasta are both delicious meals.   You’ll want to cook the meat in another pan and add it into the large pot at the very end when you are adding the rest of the ingredients.  
For chicken, I recommend shredded boneless chicken breasts.  For sausage we like either ground Italian sausage, or Italian sausage chopped up into 1/4 inch slices.
