We have found a way to cook pasta with an electric kettle. Not ramen, not mac'n'cheese noodles. We can cook good, old fashioned, penne pasta!
After discovering this new method, we wanted to come up with a wonderful, hearty recipe that features this penne. So, we created a simple cream sauce for this cheesy penne with freshly steamed broccoli. This is perfect if you need to make dinner in your room, or if you are just starving at 4:00 in the afternoon :)
1 serving cooked penne
1/2 cup steamed broccoli (f)
For the cream sauce:
1 tbsp butter (f)
1/4 cup shredded cheese (parmesan, mozzarella, or cheddar) (f)
1/4 cup cream
salt and pepper to taste
Directions for sauce:
1. In a double boiler, melt butter
2. Add cream and stir over steam for 3 minutes
3. Add cheese and stir until cheese melts and sauce thickens
4. Add pepper and salt to taste
While sauce rests, make pasta using the pasta method and either steam or heat up some broccoli.
When pasta is done, assemble dish: place drained broccoli on pasta, then cover with cream sauce.
Eat while pasta is hot.
