Tonight I started the water boiling and cooked the pasta --just before the noodles were fully cooked I added in broccoli florets and let both cook together. I drained the pot and reserved about 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. While the pasta drained I quickly sautéed some red onion, garlic, crushed red peppers, chopped prosciutto and dried oregano -- it cooks up in just a flash since the pot is still warm from the pasta. I added the pasta and broccoli back into the pot along with a good sized dollop of ricotta cheese and a splash of the cooking water. A couple turns of the spoon and a few sprinkles of parmesan cheese (stirred in and just melted by the warm pasta ad the cooking liquid) and dinner was served. One pot to clean -- success.
