A greeting from my Sunday pasta kitchen!
The fact that I love pasta over everything is no longer a big secret. My Italian heart beats in my soul!
In earlier times pasta was very often on my table. In the meantime, on my weight loss journey I have greatly reduced pasta consumption.
We have made it a ritual to eat pasta on Sundays as with the pizza on Fridays! We look forward to it all week.
Today I have for you this delicious and uncomplicated pasta with broccoli! I used this time Fusilli (always called “jump noodles” by Junior). Spaghetti, Penne or other pasta are of course an option too if you like!
I have used deep-frozen Broccoli this time because, with the high consumption of vegetables, which I have meanwhile, I like frozen vegetables very much! And yes I admit a little laziness plays there certainly a role!
Well, in terms of taste, I don’t taste a difference. The reason why I don’t cook the broccoli, because they keep its crunchiness. We don’t like overcooked vegetables so much.
So here is my easy and quick recipe!
