Dinner Special: Spicy Broccoli Pasta

Such a simple and quick meal. It took me no time at all to prepare it, which was good because I got home from work around 5:00 P.M and didn’t want my family waiting all night to eat. It ended up being such a healthy, enjoyable meal. I served it with a simple salad, which was prepared by my brother. If you’re looking for a vegetarian meal, or even just a healthy one, here is one for you!

Spicy Broccoli Pasta


1 lb. broccoli
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
