Italian cuisine has developed through centuries of social and political changes, with roots stretching to antiquity.  Italian cuisine is simple and a number of dishes having only four to eight ingredients.  They rely mostly on the quality of ingredients rather than elaborate preparation.
Noteworthy changes in Italian cuisine happened with the discovery of the New World and the introduction of potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers and maize, which are now an integral part of this cuisine.  Italian cuisine is known for its regional diversity each with a distinct taste.  This cuisine today is probably one of the most popular in the world.

Ingredients for Penne With Broccoli Recipe

  • Penne 1 1/2 cups

  • Broccoli 12-14 florets

  • Fresh red chillies 2

  • Salt to taste

  • Vegetable stock 1/2 cup

  • Garlic 6-8 cloves

  • Black pepper powder 1/2 teaspoon

  • Yogurt low fat 3 tablespoons

  • Pine nuts(chilgoza) 1 tablespoon


Step 1

Diagonally slice red chillies. Heat sufficient water in a deep non stick pan. Place a sieve in the water, add penne and salt. Place another smaller sieve over the first sieve and put broccoli florets in it. This way both penne and broccoli will get cooked simultaneously.

Step 2

Heat a non stick wok and pour in vegetable stock. Crush garlic and add. Add red chillies, salt and pepper powder and simmer. When the penne is cooked al dente, drain and add to the wok and mix. Add yogurt, broccoli and pine nuts and mix well.
