Fettucine with Broccoli and Pine Nuts

Makes 8 1-cup servings

This dish is perfect for a light supper. For a heartier meal, serve it with a bean soup and a crisp green salad.

8 ounces dry fettuccine noodles
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 - 8 large garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons pine nuts
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper, or pinch cayenne pepper
1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 bunch broccoli

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse.

Heat oil in a large skillet and sauté garlic, pine nuts, and red pepper flakes or cayenne for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Add tomatoes and simmer 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Break or cut broccoli into florets. Peel stems and slice into rounds. You should have about 3 to 4 cups of broccoli. Steam until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes, then add to tomatoes.

Spread cooked pasta on a large platter and top with sauce. Serve immediately.
