    Broccoli and Macaroni

    Source of Recipe


    1 lb pasta, If using spagetti, break in half
    1 head broccoli

    1 large can Italian Style Tomatoes
    3 peeled and chopped garlic cloves
    1 tsp basil
    2 tsp oregano
    2 tsp parsley
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp pepper

    This is a two pot meal from my grandparents from Sicily:

    Cut the broccoli floweretts and some stem into bite size pieces
    and put into lar ge pot of cold water. Put on stove and bring to

    While waiting to boil, put the Italian tomatoes and spices in a
    pot. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes covered. This is a basic
    Marinara sauce. You can add any other s pices at this time, even
    red wine.

    When the broccoli and water starts to boil, pour the pound of
    macaroni and cook until desired tenderness.

    When macaroni is done, pour out 1/2 the water and add the Marinara

    If any is left over, refrigerate. The next day, you may need to
    add water since the macaroni will absorb the water.
