Easy Broccoli Pasta

If you’ve ever been stuck staring at a cupboard with odds and ends of pasta and a freezer full of vegetables and wondered how you were going to scrape together something resembling a meal, wonder no more. This is your go-to. Broccoli is ideal for this, but honestly, any veggie you like with Parmesan and pasta will work…the more the merrier. Turn it into a full meal by adding in whatever leftover protein you’ve got on hand, or a can of beans.

Tip: Cooking does not get much simpler than this. If you’ve got a kid who’s eager to take responsibility for cooking the family dinner, this is a great training recipe.
