Broccoli Bowtie Pasta

Hello everyone!
Happy Memorial Day weekend!
Since barbecue season has officially begun I thought I would share one of my favorite pasta salads.
We always whip this up to go with our barbecues.

You will need:

1 large head of Broccoli
1/2 a pound of bow tie pasta
2 Tablespoons of butter
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Teaspoon of minced garlic
Zest of one lemon
1 Teaspoon of pepper
1 Teaspoon of salt
1 Teaspoon of lemon juice
Fresh parmesan cheese

Fill pot with water and bring to a boil.
Add a pinch of salt.
Cut broccoli into florets and add to boiling water.
Cook three minutes.
Remove broccoli and in the same boiling water add pasta.
Cook pasta for twelve minutes.
Drain well and add to broccoli.
In a small sauce pan add butter, olive oil, garlic, and lemon zest over low medium heat.
Cook for one minute.
Remove from heat.
Add salt, pepper and lemon juice and stir.
Add mixture to the pasta and broccoli.
Mix well.
Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

You can also add pine nuts if you desire.
What do you like to have with your barbecues?
