Broccoli & Garlic Pasta

2 heads broccoli, cut into florets
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 shallot, chopped
3/4 cup bread crumbs
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon oregano

Heat oil in a large pan or wok and add the garlic, oregano, salt, pepper and shallot. Saute until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Add broccoli and cook until almost tender, about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add bread crumbs and stir to incorporate and heat through. Toss with 10 oz hot, cooked pasta.

Spring this recipe!

My thoughts:
This is not even a 30 minute meal, it's a 15 minute meal and it's good. You can make the whole thing in the time it takes to boil the pasta and no one would ever know. The broccoli takes on this amazing garlic flavor and just about melts in your mouth. Perfect for a weeknight dinner.
