Pasta with Broccoli and Basil

Pasta with Broccoli and Basil

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic
2 cups broccoli, cut to bite-size pieces
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
2 cups uncooked penne or rotini
1 tablespoon basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil

- Cook pasta till al dente. While pasta is cooking saute garlic, onion, and broccoli in olive oil. Add red pepper last, just before broccoli is crips-tender.
- Mix pasta, broccoli mixture, and seasoning together

* I use 1 cup regular pasta and 1 cup whole wheat pasta.
