1 box pasta (I use Rotini)
1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 gloves garlic pressed
4 tablespoons water

1. Cook pasta according to directions on box.
2. While pasta is cooking, start browning meat in large fry pan with water, Italian Seasoning, and red pepper flakes.
3. While other two items are cooking, cut broccoli head into bite sized pieces (I leave a few larger pieces so my toddler can gnaw on them). Add broccoli for last two minutes of pasta cooking time.
4. Drain pasta and combine all ingredients in large bowl. Stir well, serve.

*Fresh grated parmesan is great served on top.
