I had a craving for some kind of pasta with broccoli, and this recipe was the result.  I received a great set of knives from my uncle, the Calphalon Contemporary 17-Piece Cutlery Set, and they are amazing! It’s so nice to be using a good set of knives now, I sliced through that spaghetti squash with no problems!

I loved this recipe and I hope you like it too!
