Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 2 Prep: 5 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Broccoli 1
Cherry tomatoes 8-10
Pancetta or bacon 50g
Dried chilli 1
Garlic 2 cloves
Olive oil 3 tbsp
Parmigiano reggiano 3-4 tbsp

Method

1
Start cooking the pasta together with the broccoli in a deep pan. Add 10-15g salt per 1 litre water.
2
Remove two broccoli florets after two minutes and keep aside for the garnish.
3
Put the olive oil in a frying pan and add the chopped pancetta and 1 smashed garlic on medium heat.
4
When the pancetta is nicely browned, add the deseeded crumbled dried chilli and finely chopped other garlic.
5
Add 2.5 ladles pasta water and shake the pan to emulsify. Add the cherry tomatoes.
6
Just before the pasta is cooked, remove the broccoli and add to the frying pan. Mash with a fork and fry.
7
Drain the pasta and add to the pan and combine with the sauce for 1 minute. It's ready when the sauce has reduced.
8
Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with the broccoli florets from Step 2 and grated Parmigiano reggiano.

Tips & Note

●I used linguine this time which takes 10 minutes to cook. Check the package instructions - if the pasta needs less time to cook, start boiling the broccoli a bit earlier
