Creamy Broccoli Pasta


In my urgency to clear the house of leavened foodstuff, I must cook all our pasta.  I won't throw any away and my neighbors are all clearing their houses out, as well.  No one local, to give it to.  We are literally, being forced to eat pasta.  Oh, poor us.  (Evil Grin)


I particularly like this dish because it is light, despite the cream and the cheese.  I am sure, it has the calories but it does not leave one, bloated.  It has a subtle flavor and is enjoyable.

Creamy Broccoli Pasta


Ingredients:


1 - 2 cups broccoli, chopped
8 ounces shells (pasta) (Gluten-free)
1/2 cup cream
1/4 cup cream cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon Mediterranean seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


Method:


Cook pasta according to package directions.  Add broccoli, 3 minutes before pasta is cooked.
Put both pasta and broccoli in bowl.
In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and mix with pasta.  If it is not warm enough, and you have a microwave, heat the dish, for a minute.
Serve and enjoy.
