Pasta and broccoli boiling
Crumbled blue cheese

This is a fantastic creamy pasta dish. Probably shouldn't be eating this everyday, but now and then; why not?

Method

  1. Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water for about 7 minutes. If using dried pasta, cook for 10 to 12 minutes
  2. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, add the broccoli florets
  3. Drain the pasta and broccoli thoroughly - a quick whizz in a salad spinner does the trick!
  4. Pop the pasta and broccoli back into the hot pan, add the crumbled blue cheese, pour over the cream, sprinkle with chives and serve immediately.

Variations

Use about 80 grams of dried pasta if not using fresh pasta.

Serving suggestions

To add a texture variation, I added a handful of crushed walnuts, and for colour, some sliced tomatoes.
