I used homemade cavatelli, but made the rest as written..suprisingly one of the best pasta dishes ever! I was concerned with a total cooking time of over 20 minutes on the broccoli it would be a grey mushy disaster..however, I know contrary to popular belief; Italians like their vegetables well done, in this case really made this fantastic..love that theres no garlic..so tasty. I thought I didnt like broccoli any more but I do now! Will buy the proper pasta shape next time too. I knew Marcella wouldnt steer me wrong..
