Fast and Easy Garlic and Broccoli Pasta

What you need: 

3-4 tablespoon olive oil (too much makes your broccoli mushy)
1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (use as much or as little as you like, I like a lot!)
2 cup broccoli, frozen
2 cup cooked noodles of choice, I like this dish with fettucine
garlic flavored salt, to taste

What you do: 

Put olive oil in hot pan at medium heat, and add garlic. When the garlic pieces start to brown add the broccoli, still frozen. You could speed this step up by heating the broccoli thoroughly by other means, but this way really takes in the flavor of the garlic and the oil. Continuously stir the dish until the broccoli is soft, about ten minutes. Sprinkle with garlic salt to your taste. At least a little is good, or it can be a little bland. Finally, toss with cooked pasta. ENJOY!!! You can throw in any additional veggies you like, I have used mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes in this too for variation. My semi-carnivorous boyfriend LOVES this, his mom was very surprised he actually ate broccoli!

I made this meal for lunch and my husband and I both enjoyed it.  I did add some mushrooms to bulk it up for us.  It's so good I had to push myself away from the table before I ate it all up.  I will be making this again and again.  I may even add some crushed red pepper next time for some zip.
