Broccoli & Parmesan Pasta

Tonight was pasta night in my kitchen... it made for a great start to my recipe following extravaganza!
On the menu:

One Pot Broccoli & Parmesan Pasta

- Boil pasta as per the directions on the bag/box (I used macaroni)

- Add broccoli florets to the boiling pasta when there is 6 minutes left on the timer

- Drain the pasta and broccoli in a colander and set aside

- Return the pot to the stove & turn heat to medium low

- Put a tablespoon of oil in the pot

- Once the oil is hot, toss in 3 chopped up cloves of garlic and cook until golden in color

- Return the pasta and broccoli to the pot, and add 1/3 cup of shredded parmesan

- Stir, and enjoy!

The cheese and garlic makes this a great recipe for those of you trying to feed greens to veggie haters!
Just a heads up - when I made this tonight, I put the cheese in the pot before I put the pasta back in... Don't do that! You're shredded cheese will turn into one giant cheesy glob (which could be great on a cracker, but not so much with the pasta).

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. Please feel free to share your recipes with me so I don't starve!
