Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 6 servings
  1. Add salt to large pot of water. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch the broccolini in the boiling water for a minute or 2 mins. If you have frozen broccolini or broccoli, cook or steam based on your preference.
  2. Remove Broccolini with a slotted spoon or fine-mesh sieve. You can also use a strainer for your broccolini or broccoli. Set aside.
  3. Add pasta to boiling water, and cook until al dente.
  4. Meanwhile, heat olive oil and sliced or minced garlic in a large pan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until fragrant and lightly browned, 5 mins.
  5. Add broccolini, chili flakes, and optional seasoning to the large pan with garlic.
  6. Next, add your pasta, by transferring it from the water with a slotted spoon or tongs, directly into the oil. Feel free to add optional parsley. Toss to coat.
  7. Add ½ cup of pasta water into the pan and bring to a boil, stirring gently.
  8. Turn off the heat, and gently stir until the "sauce" thickens.
  9. If you want a cheesy pasta, sprinkle in vegan cheese, and mix well until cheese melts.
  10. Serve on a plate and top with a squeeze of lemon.
