Great side dish! I love broccoli and pasta and so does my husband and this was no exception. This was very light with a nice garlic flavor and a hint of lemon. I used penne pasta and instead of heating the garlic and lemon juice in olive oil I used minced garlic from the jar and whisked the "dressing" in a small bowl. I added a bit more lemon juice and some lemon zest. Once the broccoli and pasta were done I tossed everything together and used a combination of parmesan and romano cheeses. This was a perfect light side dish to accompany "Apple Cider Chicken Marinade" from this site. Note: If you want to add a little kick to this dish sprinkle a bit of crushed red pepper flakes on top!

Light and awesome for summer! I substituted snow pea pods for part of the broccoli as my family isn't big on a lot of broccoli. I think this time I might add some chicken to make it an entire meal!

Great recipe. My family loves it. Easy recipe to vary. I make it a little different every time. Have added red pepper flakes used whole wheat pasta & low fat parm & even grilled chicken substituted lime for lemon and added extra spices (thyme oregano basil) or leave as is. You really can't go wrong w/this recipe

This was very good! My family ate it all up. I added chicken to it like the other reviewer. With the addition of the chicken I think it could use a little more lemon juice next time.
