How to make easy pasta recipes

Enter this 20 Minute Lemon Broccoli Pasta Skillet! This is the best kind of recipe, because it’s so basic that you can literally swap in whatever you have on hand. It’s just rotini, broccoli, spinach, and a simple lemon-butter-garlic sauce. No broccoli? Use asparagus! No rotini? Use spaghetti! No lemons? Use another acid like red wine vinegar (make sure you taste as you go!)

If you do use a lemon though, I highly recommend zesting with a microplane grater (here’s the one I have). It will take you 30 seconds and amps up the flavor a ton. It’s my favorite kitchen tool!

Super delicious. Add extra chili flakes if you want a little more flavor and kick. Same with lemon. Tastes almost better the next day, cold or reheated! The first time I tried it I thought it was way too lemon-y. My husband didn't seem to think so but next time I'll be using a little less lemon zest

Very quick and easy. I like the unique taste. I try to add more of the green ingredients because the pasta can be a bit overwhelming. Add some rotisserie chicken for extra protein if you need to.
