Broccoli and Cavetelli

At my bridal shower I was given a recipe book full of recipes from my family and friends. For some reason I haven't gotten around to making anything from this book yet! I decided I should start trying these recipes and decided to start with broccoli and cavatelli. This recipe is courtesy of a family friend and was very good. I would recommend using less garlic though. I love garlic and felt that 6 cloves was WAY too much... I would probably do 3-4 next time. I also added red pepper flakes... but next time I wouldn't.

OH! I almost forgot to mention- this is my 100th blog post! WOO HOO!

1 bag of cavatelli
1 bag of Steam Fresh broccoli
1/4-1/2 cup of EVOO (I used 1/3)
6 cloves of garlic
Parmesan cheese

1- Cook cavetelli and broccoli both according to packages, set aside.
2- In a skillet heat the oil with the garlic. Add the seasonings to taste.
3- Toss in the pasta and broccoli. Heat until hot throughout. Top with parmesan.
