Linguini with Broccoli and Red Peppers

  • 1 pound linguini pasta
  • 1 pound fresh broccoli, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 pinch garlic salt
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

Steam the broccoli with 2 tablespoons water in the microwave for 6-7 minutes.

In 10-inch skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over low heat. Stir in the garlic (more or less to suit your tastes) and red pepper slices; sauté gently.

Drain the broccoli and add to the skillet. Sprinkle lightly with garlic salt and sauté the broccoli and peppers until soft.

Toss the vegetable mixture with hot pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
