Bursting with Broccoli Pasta

You won't need a doctor if you eat lots of broccoli! This is a superfood pasta!

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

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.
 
Looking for an easy alternative to a traditional seafood boil? Need a simple recipe that works for both fresh or frozen seafood? If so, you need to see my Easy Seafood Pot recipe in episode 108 of POV Italian Cooking
 
Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto. This risotto serves as the bed upon which Beef Osso Buco will rest in the next episode (#107).
 
It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
