Spaghetti w/Broccoli and Lemon

 from Living Simple - serves 4

12 oz spaghetti (I used the wheat)
3 Tbs. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 pkg. frozen broccoli
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 lemon, zest and juice
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta per the instructions.  Reserve 1 cup water, drain pasta, return to pot.

Heat oil over medium heat and add garlic - cook 1-2 minutes.  Add broccoli, red pepper, salt and cook 1-2 minutes until broccoli is tender.  Add that to the pasta with lemon juice, Parmesan and the reserved water.  Cook 2-3 minutes.  Sprinkle with lemon zest and serve.  Also good with chicken or shrimp.
