Spicy Pasta With Chili Garlic Broccoli
A delicious way to eat your broccoli. This is totally my idea of Chili Garlic Broccoli Pasta. Actually I was going to do broccoli stir-fry. But the green and red colors attracted me. So I decided to enhance the delicacy of colors and taste to make pasta. But you can make only Chili Garlic Broccoli Stir-fry.
Farfalle pasta- 125 gm
Broccoli florets- 2 to 3 cups
Minced garlic- 6 cloves
Fresh red chilies- 1 or 2 (These chilies are mid spicy. You can use chilliflexs if they are not available.)
Chopped Onion- 1 cup (cut into 1 inch cubs)
Olive oil- 3 to 4 tbsp
Balsamic vinegar- 1 tsp
Tomato ketchup- 1 tsp (optional)
Black pepper powder -to taste
Dried rosemary or dried mix herbs-1 tsp
Grated Processed cheese- 2 cubes or Parmesan cheese-1/2 cup
Salt to taste
In bowl combine broccoli florets , balsamic vinegar, pepper & salt. Mix well & marinate broccoli at lest 15 minutes.
Boil water with salt and little oil. Add pasta to hot water and cook for 4-5 minutes till al dente. Drain pasta & wash well with cold water. Keep aside.
Heat oil in non-stick pan. Add garlic and marinated broccoli. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
Add onion and dried rosemary. Saute over medium heat. When they turn translucent, add pasta & mix well. Sauté for 2 minutes
Spread grated cheese on pasta. Serve hot.
