Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Stir in 1 pepper.
  2. Cut an "x" shape in the bottom of each tomato. Add tomatoes and broccoli to water. Simmer until broccoli has softened slightly and the tomato skins have separated from the pulp, about 5 minutes. Remove the tomatoes and broccoli with a slotted spoon. When tomatoes are cool enough to handle, remove and discard skins.
  3. Bring the water to a boil again. Cook pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, about 1 minute less than time indicated on package or 6 to 7 minutes total. Drain.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet. Add the broccoli, remaining sliced cayenne pepper, and tomatoes. Stir in drained pasta and cook over medium heat until heated through and blended.
  5. Top with cheese and extra-virgin olive oil before serving.

Sicilian Pasta with Broccoli is a great and tasty dish with a slight kick of spice which is cooled by a glass of Cold Milk. This was so easy and delicious. Perfect for weeknight meal.

Followed the recipe as written but it lacked flavor. I wouldn't bother to make again to try to fix.

This recipe was outstanding! I could not find fresh Cayenne peppers, so I used a Serrano pepper instead. I also added in some fresh minced garlic, and some of the pasta water to loosen it up! ...

Delicious! I did reserve about 1 cup of the pasta cooking liquid to 'loosen' it up a bit at the end, but that was my only change. Great flavor and the family loved it! Paired great with a glass ...

Really tasty, easy to make meal! You can add anything you want to this to change it up. It was great as it is. Nice amount of heat and a glass of milk is the perfect pairing with this dish. Wil...

I thought it was too mild. I would have liked something more saucy. If you are after stronger flavor and saucier pasta this is not the one to go with. However, it was pretty easy to make and it ...
