Broccoli & Garlic Penne Pasta

1 # Penne cook according to directions
2 heads chopped broccoli (Boil 2 minutes)
3/4 cup olive oil
10 cloves of garlic (chopped (Yes, 10 cloves)
Black pepper
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Red onion-chopped
Feta cheese

Also consider adding-Fresh parsley, Red pepper flakes, Red/yellow/green peppers, and sausage cut in 1/2 inch slices.

Method & Story;Lightly brown onion and garlic cloves in olive oil, (if you want to add peppers and sausage that's OK too) add slightly cooked Broccoli and cool for an additional 2 minutes. Add butter and cooked pasta, cook for an additional 3 - 4 minutes. I use the electric fry pan.
Serve sprinkled with Feta cheese and or Parmesan.
Be sure not to over cook the garlic, though.......
This recipe was on Robin's blog - summer of 2011, Chelsey made a variation of this during her vacation and it was so good. I added the sausage and some peppers to the mix - it was pretty and tasty, too. One of my favorite new casseroles.
