Hey, I make this but with a twist. I put the oil/garlic/broccoli in a pan. Then add one can of Chicken Broth. Let it simmer a bit then add the pasta (I like ziti with it). YUM!

As a matter of fact, I just made it last night.

Sometimes simplicity is best in dishes. I've made similar type dishes and they are so delicious, simple, and easy on the pocket book. Thanks for the reminder.
