  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 (8 ounce) package farfalle (bow tie) pasta

  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florets

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Warm olive oil in a small frying pan over low heat. Slowly cook garlic in oil until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Be very careful not to burn garlic. Stir in lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper.

  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water. About 5 minutes before pasta is done, drop broccoli into the pasta water. Continue to cook until pasta is cooked and broccoli is crisp-tender. Drain.

  3. Toss pasta, broccoli, and lemon sauce in a large bowl. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
