Posted: Updated:

Close your eyes and you're in the south of Italy! Well, not quite, but this is a popular way to enjoy pasta the way Southern Italians do.

Serves: 4

Cooking Time:20 min

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1 pound shell pasta or similar shape
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florets with 1-inch stems
  • 1/4 pound pepperoni, diced
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
What To Do:
  1. In a small skillet over low heat, heat olive oil and butter until melted; stir in garlic, basil, oregano, salt, and crushed red pepper. Cook until garlic is soft, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Do not let the garlic brown.)
  2. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta and broccoli 8 to 10 minutes, or until both are tender, stirring occasionally. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of cooking water. Place pasta and broccoli in a large bowl.
  3. Toss with garlic mixture, reserved cooking water, and pepperoni. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.
