How to Cook Perfect Pasta

Method

To make Garlic Bread Bites:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease an oven tray.

Place butter and garlic in a heatproof bowl and microwave until melted. Add 1/4 bunch of parsley and season with salt and black pepper, mix well.

Pour a little of the butter mixture onto an oven tray. Place torn bread rolls on an oven tray in a single layer. Drizzle over remaining butter mixture and sprinkle over mild cheese and remaining 1/4 bunch of parsley. Bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the top is golden and crusty.

To make the Spaghetti:

Cook pasta as per packet instructions. Drain and return to the saucepan until ready to serve.

Pour 1-2cm water into a saucepan, season with salt, bring to a boil then cook the broccoli for 2 – 3 minutes, or until just cooked. Drain well and place directly into a food processor with the fresh basil leaves, cream and parmesan. Season with salt and pepper then blend to a sauce. Pour directly onto the hot pasta. Toss well, drizzle with a little olive oil. Serve in bowls garnished with 2 Tbsp chopped parsley and 1 Tbsp chopped basil with wedges of garlic bread bites on the side.
