Spicy Spaghetti with Broccoli

Spicy Spaghetti with Broccoli
This pasta recipe does not require any creamy sauce or tomatoes.It just absorbs all the spiciness from the seasoning and can be had on its own.It can also be served along with some interesting side dish such as chicken/eggplant  parmisiana or with some oven roasted vegetables.
This recipe is adapted from the FoodNetwork website and is by the Chef  'Giada De Laurentiis'. I love all her recipes especially the veggie ones, very simple yet delicious.




Ingredients:
200gm packet of Spaghetti Pasta.
1 broccoli cut into florets
4 cloves of galic finely chopped
1 tsp of dried oregano
4 - 5 red chillie broken

Method.
Cook the pasta as per instructions.
Save some of the liquid about  half a cup while draining the pasta.
In a wide pan add 2 tsp of olive oil.
Add chopped garlic and the redchillies to the hot oil.

To this add the broccoli florets , oregano, sprinkle some salt,  give it a stir .
Now add the reserved water from the pasta and let it come to a boil.
Add the cooked pasta and mix well till all the water is absorbed by the pasta

Serve with any of your favorite side dish.




Here is another recipe - Veggie Lasagna adapted from Giada De Laurentiis Food network recipes, which I cherish the most. This dish is loaded with vegetables rich in vitamins and antioxidants. I had posted this recipe in 2006. Reposting  the picture and the link here again just for you all to have a glance and enjoy.


Both these pasta are going to the pasta party by Jyoti at Panch Pakwan
