About this recipe: This is a simple but satisfying pasta dish that is quite healthy, too. Olive oil, garlic, vegetable stock and basil round out the basic combination of broccoli and pasta. You can use penne or fusilli if you don't have rigatoni to hand.

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain.

  3. Toss the broccoli mixture with the basil and cooked pasta. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese on top.

Parmesan cheese

Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
