Yay, it is pasta night! Every time we have pasta I always say to John, “I could eat pasta every night of the week!” Originally broccolini was going to be our green vegetable. Since the store was all out, broccoli was a good choice. While the heavily salted pasta water was heating up, I sautéed the mushrooms, spices, onions, and garlic. Once the penne is cooked and drained (reserving a cup of pasta water) I put the broccoli in the pan and then it gets cooked really quickly in the hot pasta and pasta water.
I am already looking forward to next week’s pasta dish!
