• 10 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • Several pinches of hot red pepper flakes
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, or as desired
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 head of broccoli, broken into bite-size florets
  • Freshly grated Parmesan, or other grating cheese


Boil water and add noodles to cook as usual, except about half way through cooking add the broccoli and let the noodles and broccoli finish cooking at the same time.  Drain, but reserve about half the cooking water for later.  Warm approximately half of the garlic with the pepper flakes in the olive oil over medium heat (turn on the vent and open the kitchen window or you'll be crying in your spaghetti!)

Toss the pasta and broccoli with the garlic/chile oil and add the remaining garlic to the mix and continue to toss to coat. Add a few spoonfuls of that reserved water and keep tossing, add more water as needed.  Kind of have to eyeball it until it's well coated and tossed to your liking.  Serve up and sprinkle with grated cheese.  There will be no fear of vampires bothering you after this dinner!
