Ingredients

12 oz (360 g) rigatoni or 
farfalle pasta
3 cups (750 mL) broccoli pieces (1 small bunch)
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 onion, minced
1 tsp (5 mL) grated lemon rind
1/4 cup (60 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 tbsp (45 mL) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (125 mL) vegetable stock or 
chicken stock
2 1/2 cups (625 mL) Milk
Salt and pepper, to taste
pinch of ground nutmeg
1 red bell pepper or 
orange bell pepper, diced
Freshly grated Canadian Parmesan cheese

Preparation

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 10 minutes or until almost tender. Stir in broccoli. Drain immediately and set aside.

In same pot, melt butter over medium-high heat; cook garlic and onion, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until starting to turn golden. Stir in lemon juice and cook, scraping up any bits stuck to pot until almost evaporated.

Sprinkle with flour and cook, stirring, for 30 secondes. Gradually stir in stock then milk. Stir in lemon rind, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) of salt, the pepper and nutmeg. Cook, stirring constantly, until starting to thicken, about 3 minutes. Stir in drained pasta and broccoli and red pepper; cook, stirring gently until pasta is hot and sauce is thickened. Season to taste with salt.

Serve sprinkled with Canadian Parmesan cheese.

Tips

Cooking Tip:
To save time, look for pre-cut fresh broccoli in packages in the produce section. If using frozen broccoli, thaw and drain under cold running water and add to pot in the last step with the drained pasta.

For the Adventurous:
Add 1 can (19 oz/540 mL) chickpeas, drained and rinsed and 1/4 cup (60 mL) each currants and toasted pine nuts with the drained pasta.
