Recipe

This Lemon and Garlic Broccoli Pasta couldn't get any easier. It is ready in about 15 minutes and you probably already have everything you need to make it at home. Just start by boiling some pasta and adding the broccoli during the last few minutes of cooking. Then while the pasta does its thing, make a quick sauce using butter, olive oil, garlic, and lemon zest. Toss that with the pasta and broccoli and add some Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Dinner is served.
