"Orecchiette pasta is combined with broccoli, toasted pine nuts, and Parmesan cheese, then broiled until crisp and golden. Great comfort food!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was good. I had reservations because I thought there wouldn't be much flavor. I tried putting in less butter, but ended up going with the whole amount. I used garlic/parsley flavored pasta and followed another reviewer's suggestion of adding a squeeze of lemon at the end. Because I probably used too much pasta, I had to add more chicken broth as well. All in all, this was a great meal as long as you use high quality ingredients. (I also used regular balsamic vinegar, which turned out fine.)
This was not very good. I thought it sounded delicious, but when i actually made it, i was sorely disappointed. It was very bland and didn't have a whole lot of content. I ended up having to add a lot to make it taste good. Also, as a side note - the portions are very large.
This meal made me so happy! I really loved it in its simplicity. I added a squeeze of lemon juice and stayed to the recipe other than that. I do think more broccoli and more pine nuts would improve the ratio. My man thought some crushed red pepper would do well, too. Excellent. I hope you get many positive ratings for this!
Very tasty! We liked it an might try adding sun dried tomatoes next time.
When I found this recipe when I was hunting for something to make with what I had in the cupboard. I also added chicken as well as used regular balsamic. It turned out great! My entire family loved it and we will definitely make it again.
This was a great family meal. I added chicken that I seasoned and sauteed. It was delicious and I make it once a week, and my kids love it, including the broccoli.
I loved this pasta. I used regular balsamic vinegar and shredded parmesan cheese instead. Skipped the "crisping" step but it was delicious!
Awesome recipe. I did not add the broccoli or the pine nuts. I added can chicken, red wine vinegar and a couple pinches of dill weed. Cooked it all in the pot. Just sprinkled Parmesan and put the lid on the casserole and it all steamed together. I didn't even put it in the oven because I couldn't wait to eat it.!Scrumptious! !
