Spaghetti & Broccoli

Here is a very simple, very good and very healthy meal.

Take two stalks of fresh broccoli and cut the flowers off. Put flowers in steamer and lightly sprinkle with salt. As broccoli steams, fill a saucepan about 2/3 full of water and bring to boil. Once boiling add about two inches in diameter of tightly held spaghetti to the water. Cook spaghetti according to the instructions on package (about 7 to 10 minutes). When spaghetti is done broccoli should be done, but it’s a good idea to check on broccoli once while spaghetti is cooking. To be good, steamed broccoli should have just turned a very dark green, and should be cutable with a fork with slight difficulty. Add one teaspoon of olive oil to spaghetti and stir it in. Add broccoli to spaghetti and garnish with a small amount of grated Parmesan cheese. Kamut or Spelt spaghetti are good options for those eliminating wheat from their diets.

Enjoy ----Great stuff.
