Rigatoni with Broccoli

Jamie Massie continued to wow us with this garlicy dish. The light sauce and healthy broccoli keep it from being an overly heavy pasta dish. Though most of us agreed our husbands and kids would probably eat around the broccoli...

1 bunch broccoli (about 1/4 lbs)
1/4 C olive oil
4 garlic cloves, sliced thin
pinch of crushed red pepper
8 oz of rigatoni noodles

Trim the broccoli and cut into pieces. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot. Add the broccoli and cook for 5 minutes. Remove broccoli from water and set aside. Add rigatoni to water and cook until al dente{check box for time}. Pour oil into skillet large enough to hold all ingredients. Add garlic and red pepper. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add broccoli and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes. Add cooked and drained rigatoni and remove from heat. Toss with Parmesan.
