There's nothing better than sitting down in front of the TV (or the streaming service), dog (or the cat) at your side, putting your feet up, and having a big heaping bowl of pasta to wallow away the last part of the day. This meal has perfect bite-sized forkfuls of tomatoes, pine nuts, and broccoli tossed in a cheesy cream sauce. Here, we've given you a supreme pasta; up to you to provide the bowl, entertainment, and pet.
Add pasta to boiling water. Cook until al dente, 11-13 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside. While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Chop broccoli into small, bite-sized pieces. Mince garlic. Halve tomatoes. Place pine nuts in a dry, medium pan. Place pan over medium heat and toast, stirring often, until nuts are aromatic and light brown, 2-5 minutes. Remove to a plate and set aside. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Roast the Broccoli
Toss broccoli on prepared baking sheet with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread into a single layer and roast until tender and slightly charred, 10-12 minutes. While broccoli roasts, make sauce.
Make the Sauce
Return pan used to toast pine nuts to medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and garlic to hot pan. Cook until aromatic, 30-60 seconds. Add pasta cooking water, white wine, cream, and Parmesan (reserving a pinch for garnish). Stir occasionally until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 2-4 minutes.
Finish the Pasta
Add pasta, roasted broccoli, and butter to sauce and stir until pasta is evenly coated and butter melted. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Remove from burner.
