Purple sprouting broccoli has returned! A great purple sprouting broccoli recipes comes from Nigel Slater’s ‘Appetite’ cookbook – ‘A quick & soothing weekday cheese & pasta supper’.
Ingredients (Serves 2)
1 200g bag of purple sprouting broccoli
Pasta of your choice
Cook your pasta in a large pan of boiling, salted water.
Bring a second smaller pan of water to the boil and salt it lightly. Trim the broccoli, removing the woody end and cutting it into small florets and thin pieces of tender stalk. Simmer until tender (2-3 minutes)
Put the cheese into a warm serving bowl, then add the hot, drained broccoli followed by the lightly drained pasta. A little of the cooking water will prevent the pasta sticking together and help the sauce to coat it easily. Toss the cheese, broccoli and pasta and serve.
