Broccoli Pasta

This is a special family recipe that I had for the very first time when I was 2 or 3 years old. My mom hosted monthly tea parties and invited some other little girls over. I requested this meal for the main dish every time. I grew up making it with my mom, alongside her in the kitchen.

As a young mom, I served it to my own kids, and it has continued to be a family favorite. My own kids request it often. My daughter, Kaprice, has had it for every birthday excluding the two when she was in Hawaii at college. During her high school years, her friends came over almost every weekend asking me to prepare her favorite dish. After several times, I had them all over and taught them how to prepare it. Kaprice is 22 years old now, and some of her high school friends still mention this meal as one of their favorites.
