Ingredients

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 (8 ounce) package farfalle (bow tie) pasta

1 head broccoli, cut into florets

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Warm olive oil in a small frying pan over low heat. Slowly cook garlic in oil until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Be very careful not to burn garlic. Stir in lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water. About 5 minutes before pasta is done, drop broccoli into the pasta water. Continue to cook until pasta is cooked and broccoli is crisp-tender. Drain.

Toss pasta, broccoli, and lemon sauce in a large bowl. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
