Broccoli & Penne.

DI Chiara Maci | 13 Nov 2018


Let’s go with broccoli!

Penne, anchovy and green olives.

A tasty, simple and complete first course.

If I were you I would make it 🙂



200g of striped penne

1 broccoli

1 spring onion

Extra virgin olive oil

Green olives

1 anchovy

Chilli pepper to taste

Parmigiano reggiano


– Clean broccoli carefully. Wash them and cut all florets.  Remove leaves and the outermost and hardest part of the stems with a potato peeler or knife, then cut them vertically in halves and into small pieces.

– Blanch them in boiling water.

– Put some water for pasta to boil into a saucepan. Salt it when boiling and drop the striped penne.

– In the meantime, chop the onion and let it simmer gently in a pan with a little oil and a little water.

– Melt the anchovy in it, drain broccoli and add them.

– Add also the green olives, chopped roughly, and a little chilli pepper to taste.

– Drain pasta directly into the pan with the seasoning and mix all flavours. Cream with a sprinkle of parmigiano reggiano cheese.
