You’ll Love This Garlic Spaghetti with Broccoli Recipe

Spaghetti is one of the most popular pastas in the world. In the United States, you can find it in practically every grocery store. Most families probably have at least a box in their pantry at any given time, and may even enjoy it once a week.

Ordinary spaghetti and tomato sauce can get boring after a while, especially if you have it frequently. But, the idea of switching to a different spaghetti dish may feel out of the question for you. Usually, families make spaghetti for dinner because it's easy and affordable.

Finding a new pasta recipe doesn't have to mean sacrificing those things. With a recipe like this one, you'll be able to add flair to ordinary spaghetti without burning a hole through your wallet or spending a lot of time in the kitchen.

Garlic is a common flavor added to pasta dishes, and that's certainly the case here. We're also adding broccoli for additional nutrition. With cheese and garlic thrown in, your picky eaters may not be so indignant about eating their veggies!
