“Orecchiette pasta is combined with broccoli, toasted pine nuts, and Parmesan cheese, then broiled until crisp and golden. Great comfort food!” - by Lisa M.
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Preheat your oven's broiler. Lightly butter a 9x13 inch baking dish.
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, cook for 8 minutes, then stir in broccoli, and cook 3 minutes more. Drain and return to the pot.
- Meanwhile, heat the olive oil over medium heat, and stir in the garlic. Cook and stir until the garlic has turned golden-brown, about 3 minutes. Pour in white balsamic vinegar, chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then pour over the drained pasta and broccoli. Stir in the butter, pine nuts, and half of the Parmesan cheese, then pour into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
- Broil in preheated oven until the cheese has crisped and turned golden brown, about 4 minutes.

Because I probably used too much pasta, I had to add more chicken broth as well. All in all, this was a great meal as long as you use high quality ingredients. (I also used regular balsamic vinegar, which turned out fine.)"
"This meal made me so happy! I really loved it in its simplicity. I added a squeeze of lemon juice and stayed to the recipe other than that. I do think more broccoli and more pine nuts would improve ..." See morethe ratio. My man thought some crushed red pepper would do well, too. Excellent. I hope you get many positive ratings for this!"
