Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cook pasta and drain well; set aside until needed.
  • Put some olive oil – just enough to cover the bottom – into a large pan; sauté diced garlic for just a minute over high heat.
  • Remove pan from heat and add pasta; toss with sautéed garlic.
  • Simmer bite-size pieces of fresh broccoli in hot water for 5 minutes; drain very well and add to pasta pan.
  • Add freshly grated parmesan cheese; toss to coat well.
  • Finally, add the heavy cream (as Laurenzo was known to say, “yes, four cups…this ain’t no diet dish, y’all…”).
  • Taste to see if you want to add salt and pepper.
  • Throw the whole mess into a large, buttered casserole and top with shredded mozzarella (I guess Laurenzo figured the dish was already gonna give you a heart attack, so why stop with the high fat at this point?).
  • Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly and the cheese is lightly browned, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • *NOTE: Add strips of grilled chicken breast or cooked shrimp for a main course dish.
