This is also my contribution towards Pasta Presto Nights No 126 which is being hosted by mother and daughter pair Giz (Gizmar) and Psychgrad of Equal Opportunity Kitchen, This blog is relatively new to me, but what I have seen I really like, especially the fact it shows 'real food', food you want to eat, not just 'photogenic food'. I always enjoy participating in PPN as it is fondly known, as Ruth of 4Everykitchen is such a wonderful co-host. PPN has a very simple pre-requisite. The dish must have some sort of noodle, it doesn't have to be traditional Italian type pasta, it can be hot, cold, salad, soup, main, dessert, or anything else, but it must have some kind of noodle. I must get this in by the deadline which is today.
Serves 4 generously
150g penne pasta,
100g-200g broccoli, washed and cut into pieces
4 tablespoons of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, sliced
generous pinch of chilli flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
6 medium eggs, beaten
100g cheddar cheese, grated
First make pasta according to packet instructions, when cooked drain and leave on side to cool.
In a frying pan, add oil with broccoli and garlic and cook over medium heat until soft. Add in the cooked pasta and stir till warmed through. Add chilli flakes, salt and pepper to beaten eggs and pour over the pasta and broccoli mix. Cook slowly until set. Scatter over cheese, and place under grill until golden. Cut in quarters and serve.
