  • 1 (8 ounce) package linguine pasta

  • 1 (12 ounce) bag broccoli florets, cut into bite-size pieces

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic

  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • ½ cup finely shredded Romano cheese

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • salt to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook linguine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain and return to pot.

  2. While the pasta cooks, place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water, just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir garlic and red pepper flakes until garlic is fragrant, 1 to 3 minutes. Add garlic mixture and broccoli to linguine; gently toss to coat.

  4. Add cheese, parsley, black pepper, and salt; toss to combine.
