Stir-fried broccoli pasta







Cook Time

20-30 Min


  • 450g/1lb angel hair pasta
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 head broccoli, broken into florets
  • 2 red peppers, seeded and diced
  • 250ml/9fl oz double cream
  • 175g/6oz Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • Cook the pasta in lightly salted boiling water for 8–10 minutes until just al dente. Drain, retaining just a little of the cooking water, then toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Keep warm.
  • Heat the remaining oil in a heavy frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté lightly until soft (but do not brown). Add the broccoli and peppers, and sauté until tender.
  • Remove the vegetables from the pan and set aside. Add the cream and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes until it starts to thicken. Add the Parmesan and a pinch of nutmeg, and cook for a further 2 minutes to thicken a bit more.
  • Return the vegetables to the pan with the pasta, and toss together well. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately.
