Ingredients
1 pkg (1 lb.) Angel Hair pasta (also known as Capellini)
about 2 tbs. olive oil
4 mashed garlic cloves
salt to taste
3 cups steamed and chopped broccoli

Directions
1 – Bring a large pot with water to boil and add 1 tablespoon of salt.
2 – Follow the pasta package instructions to determine the amount of water and cooking time.
3 – Mash garlic and mix well with a pinch of salt.
4 – When pasta is cooked, heat 2 tbs of olive oil in a sauce pan.
5 – Add garlic and cook just until it begins to turn white.
6 – Turn off the heat, add pasta and broccoli. Stir well.
7 – Add more salt, if necessary, and serve.

Tips
  • Use zucchini or eggplant instead of broccoli.
  • Palm hearts or mushrooms also go well with this dish.
  • Serve with baked tilapia with tomatoes (photo), chicken breast or tuna.
  • Garlic should only be heated in oil. If they overcook, the taste of burned garlic will overwhelm your recipe.
