Pasta With Broccoli And Sun-dried Tomatoes

Always a big hit at any gathering.  I love the fresh broccoli and the sweetness of the sun dried tomatoes.  So easy to make and so delicious!  There's never any left!

Pasta With Broccoli And Sun-dried Tomatoes 

1 pound rotini pasta
1 medium sized broccoli crown, cut into bite sized florets
1 small onion, minced
1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes, rough chop
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon of oil from jar of tomatoes
1 garlic clove, crushed
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook pasta to al dente, according to package directions. Reserve 2 tablespoons of pasta water.  When pasta is done, drain and return to warm pot with heat off.

Meanwhile, place broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl with 3 tablespoons water. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 5 minutes, or until tender. Remove and set aside.
In the pasta pot, add the sun dried tomatoes along with 1 teaspoon of the oil from the jar.  Add the onion and garlic and toss well.  Add pasta water as needed to create an evenly-distributed sauce.  Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve warm.
