Ingredients

1 pound farfalle pasta

2 heads broccoli, trimmed to florets (about 4 cups)

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

4 tablespoons butter

3 garlic cloves, chopped

5 anchovy fillets, diced

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook, stirring occasionally. After 5 minutes, add the broccoli florets to the pasta and stir and cook for another 4 minutes. Drain pasta and broccoli, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add the garlic, anchovies, and red pepper flakes and cook for 5 minutes. Add the broccoli, pasta, salt and pepper and toss. Add some of the reserved pasta water, if necessary, to make a light sauce. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with Parmesan.
