Cavatelli and Broccoli

Cavatelli and broccoli is the perfect vegetarian pasta dish alternative. The cavatlelli, small pasta shells that are very similar to hot dog buns, perfectly synchronizes with the broccoli and its crisp texture. Like many Italian pastas, it’s not too difficult to prepare, especially if you’re not trying to make the noodles yourself. Be sure not to remove the bite from the noodles by making them too mushy. The same goes for the broccoli. The crispness and sharpness of the ingredients is what makes this dish truly fun to eat.

Health Benefits 

Broccoli is one of those vegetables that you just can’t argue against. It has too many health benefits to not eat.
