"This is a wonderful side dish, but on many occasions we make this our whole meal, along with a salad and bread!" — Chris Catley

fresh broccoli, chopped
extra virgin olive oil
red bell pepper, thinly sliced
grated Parmesan cheese
Great dish! I made it lowfat by omitting the butter and using less oil. I would also recommend either doubling the veggies, or cutting the pasta amount in half. The second time I made this, I added 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion to the peppers, and it made a difference in the flavor! Timesaver tip: add the broccoli to the boiling pasta for 3-4 minutes, then scoop out and add to the red peppers. Thanks for the recipe!
I'm sorry but this was BORING! Others have stated to increase the oil/butter to equally spread over the lb of noodles, which is what I did but I would think that 1/2 cup of chicken broth or white wine would have been a much better option. It wasn't that it tasted bad but basically, this meal was just butter, oil, noodles and broccoli. I think it put my tatse buds to sleep. Thanks anyways.
Read through a lot of the reviews and suggestions and also made a few modifications and it was excellent:
No butter, only olive oil, for sauteeing. One red bell pepper, one green bell pepper, three diced fresh tomatoes, ten oil cured black olives (when we couldn't find any anchovies), and three heaping soup spoons of diced fresh garlic from the Sams Club jumbo container. Also a teaspoon and a half of salt
Strongly considered adding some red pepper flakes or salsa, but were afraid to push the envelope too much...
Instead of linguini, we used penne pasta, and it turned out as good as any Whole Foods pasta salad, delicious warm and room temperature.
This was very tasty and easy to prepare! I added some roma tomatoes to the saute of garlic, broccoli & peppers.
It was a hit with my family and my best friend! I will definitly make this again!
Very tasty! I found that a whole pound of Linguini was too much for the sauce/vegetables. I recommend only cooking half the box (1/2 pound) or else doubling the rest. I used half and it came out very nice.
I've made this dish about 5 times already and just love it! I've discovered though that i like to add more veggies than called for, and extra parmesan cheese.
I really enjoyed this dish. It makes for a very nice light supper with a green salad. It is a little dry, but I just added an extra tablespoon of olive oil. The flavors of the vegetables really come through.
1/2 the pasta, flourettes of the broccoli, no stem, double the red pepper, 1/4 cup cheese before grating, double the garlic, 4 slices bacon, crisp, crunbled, add a drizzle of olive oil, and some dipping spices. Toss. Wife wants it again tomorrow.
