Broccoli tomato ziti with white wine garlic sauce

This is a meal my Italian mother used to make all the time while I was growing up. It’s a great way to trick kids into eating broccoli, because I know I loved it. She used chicken stock for this recipe, but a simple switch to vegetable stock makes this a vegan delight!

What you will need:

Broccoli (as much as you want)
Grape or cherry tomatoes (as many as you’d like)
Ziti/Penne Pasta (I prefer whole wheat, but that’s up to you)
8 cloves garlic, minced
Vegetable stock (enough to cover broccoli)
About a 1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup white wine
Salt and pepper to taste
Garlic powder to taste

1. Begin boiling water for pasta in separate pot, add pasta when it begins to boil, and drain.

Simultaneously,

2. Heat olive oil in non-stick pan.

3. Add garlic, salt and pepper and saute until garlic begins to brown

8. Add white wine.
9. Serve by first putting pasta in bowls and then ladling broccoli/tomato/white wine sauce.
10. Enjoy!

If you like garlic, you will looove this dish. It fills your kitchen with the sweet aromas of garlic and is a great way to get non-vegetable lovers to eat their veggies!
