Baked Broccoli with Pasta and Parsley

On with 0 Comment
Nowadays I try to include broccoli in lot of preparations. I'm trying it in soups, main course dishes and salads. This time, it's a baked pasta and broccoli recipe that was finished within 15 minutes from our dinner table. It's not only delicious but is fulfilling at the same time. I've used penne pasta for this recipe which can be replaced by your favorite alternative. Do not refrigerate this recipe as it tastes best when eaten hot and fresh. You can also add peas and carrots to this recipe if you want to make it more colorful. In my first attempt, I was not able to bake it well, so pay special attention to the baking time and temperature while cooking this yummy recipe. So let's make this cheesy and crunchy baked broccoli preparation.
