Penne Broccoli Chicken
Spicy and healthy pasta dish.
||Cook the pasta in rapidly boiling water until al dente.
||Trim the ends of the broccoli stems and cut off the flowers. Peel the outer fibrous layer off the main stalks and cut the stalks into bite-sized pieces.
||Separate the flower of the broccoli into bite-sized pieces.
||Place the broccoli in a colander and rinse under cold running water.
||Put it in a saucepan with the olive oil, garlic, water, and salt.
||Bring to a boil, cover tightly, and let steam until the broccoli is bright green and very crunchy-tender - no more than five minutes. Remove the lid and boil off most of the remaining liquid.
||Toss the broccoli with cooked pasta and chicken. Top with red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese, if desired.
