INGREDIENTS

  • ½ lb broccolini (cut into florets and 2-inch lengths) 225g)
  • ½ lb fettuccine (or pasta of choice) (225g)
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil (60ml)
  • 5 cloves garlic (minced)
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese (35g)
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese (20g)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add some salt and broccolini. Cook for 3 minutes or until tender crisp. Remove with a strainer and immediately plunge into a bowl of ice cold water to stop the cooking. Drain and set aside.
  • Add pasta to the same pot and cook until al dente, about 8 to 11 minutes, depending on the type of pasta.
  • While pasta is cooking, heat extra virgin olive oil in a small saucepan. Add garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until garlic is lightly brown. Remove and set aside.
