Spaghetti with Broccoli, Basil and Parmesan Sauce

Spaghetti with Broccoli, Basil and Parmesan Sauce


1 person made this

When I first made this recipe it was so easy. I made it for my family and it had this nice crunch from the broccoli and a texture I haven't really tasted before. It was light and fresh. I think it would go nicely with some garlic bread or chickpeas added to give that creaminess and extra protein.
