Chicken and Broccoli Pasta

We love this recipe , it’s easy and quick and is a favorite at home ! We try not to overcook the pasta and we recommend using good cheese as it changes the flavor of the dish !

We use Permigiano Reggiano Cheese and Rummo Pasta don’t buy the cheap stuff, it just isn’t the same. 

Serves 6 people




  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. When water boils, add pasta and broccoli at the same time and cook according to pasta instructions for al dente.
  3. When pasta is almost done cooking, reserve about 1 cup of the pasta water and set aside.
  4. Drain the pasta and broccoli.
  5. Return the pot to the stove and set heat to high; add 1 tbsp olive oil, when hot, add garlic. 
  6. Cook until golden, reduce flame to low and add pasta back to the pot.
  7. Mix well, add remaining olive oil, grated cheese, salt and pepper to taste mixing well and smashing any large pieces of broccoli to break up.
  8. Add 1/2 cup of reserved pasta water and mix well adding more if needed.
  9. Serve in pasta bowls with additional grated cheese on the side.

Happy Eating !
