  1. Broccoli and Macaroni

  2. 1 lb pasta, If using spagetti, break in half

  3. 1 head broccoli

  4. 1 large can Italian Style Tomatoes

  5. 3 peeled and chopped garlic cloves

  6. 1 tsp basil

  7. 2 tsp oregano

  8. 2 tsp parsley

  9. 1 tsp salt

  10. 1 tsp pepper

  11. This is a two pot meal from my grandparents from Sicily:

  12. Cut the broccoli floweretts and some stem into bite size pieces

  13. and put into lar ge pot of cold water. Put on stove and bring to

  14. boil.

  15. While waiting to boil, put the Italian tomatoes and spices in a

  16. pot. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes covered. This is a basic

  17. Marinara sauce. You can add any other s pices at this time, even

  18. red wine.

  19. When the broccoli and water starts to boil, pour the pound of

  20. macaroni and cook until desired tenderness.

  21. When macaroni is done, pour out 1/2 the water and add the Marinara

  22. sauce. If any is left over, refrigerate. The next day, you may need to

  23. add water since the macaroni will absorb the water.
