I think when you read this recipe, you can see that it would be bland. There is no mixing of the flavors. So, I did steam my broccoli in my Micro steamer for 2 to 3 min. Then I added the broccoli to the garlic in the skillet to saute, for about 2 min... set aside off fire with lid on it for about 2 min. I then put the broccoli, garlic and cheese in with pasta, put on lid and let that set as I finished the rest of dinner about 10 min. O and I forgot to save the pasta water, so I put in 3tbs of chicken broth.. I only made 1/2 of this recipe as there is only two of us. You have to let the flavors meld. I did not change the recipe just the course of how its prepared to more flavor. If you want more garlic taste too, add a few cloves to your pasta water as it cooks. Thanks... I tried this because broccoli and pasta is my sons favs...

This is a standard Italian dish...I like to cook the broccoli in with the pasta for the last 5 mins...then drain. I use closer to 8 cloves of garlic, saute in oil, add pasta water and 1/2 cup of chicken broth..simmer so flavors meld.Mix all together and add plenty of grated cheese and fresh ground pepper. Make it into a meal by adding shrimp or Italian sausage to the garlic and oil, then combine everything! Mangia!

If you are looking for a pasta dish without a heavy cream or tomato sauce, this received rave reviews from diners. I added toasted pine nuts (1/2 cup), sauteed red pepper flakes (1 tsp.) to give the recipe some depth. By request I will be making this again.
