Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Chilli, Garlic and Pine Nut Pasta

Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Chili, Garlic and Pine Nut Pasta

A quick, easy and tasty midweek supper, utilising the last of this seasons purple sprouting broccoli. The broccoli is so tender you only have to blanch it for a minute in boiling water before tossing with the pasta. The Parmesan is completely optional - but I love it!

  3. It looks delicious - but don't you mean Fusilli? Frusli is a brand name for a kind of muesli. When I was your tweet about the dish yesterday I thought that was what you meant and went UGH!
