Recipe: Tenderstem Broccoli & Brie Tagliatelle

Despite them not being very good for you most of the time, one of my favourite easy go-to meals to make have to be pasta dishes. Especially during these cold winter months here in the UK, warm lunches are the best and this is the perfect option. Adding a bit of veg to the dish the main part is the Tenderstem Broccoli which works well with the Brie and black pepper.

Serves: 1 (double ingredients for 2)
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes

75g Tagliatelle
50g Tenderstem Broccoli
50g Brie
2 - 3 tbsp Single Cream (depending how thick you like the cheese sauce)
Black Pepper (optional)

1. Wash the Tenderstem Broccoli and boil for approx 10 minutes.

2. In a separate pan, cook the tagliatelle according to the instructions on the packaging.

3. Drain the broccoli and the tagliatelle, leaving about 1 tbsp of water in the tagliatelle.

4. Add the Tenderstem broccoli to the pan of tagliatelle along with the brie and cream and slowly cook on a low heat until the brie starts to melt and stir occasionally.

5. Add black pepper if required and serve hot!

So there you have it, a nice warm winter meal, you could also always swap ingredients around such as using a different cheese that you prefer to Brie or a different pasta. I hope you enjoyed this recipe and let me know if you decide to recreate the recipe yourself. For more Tenderstem Broccoli recipes, take a look at their website here
