Spaghetti with Broccoli, Brie and Toasted Walnuts
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
8 ounces spaghetti
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 bunch broccoli (about 1 1/4 pounds), cut into 1/2inch flowerets, reserving stems for another use
1 garlic clove, minced
8 ounces Brie, cut into 1/2inch pieces
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped coarsely
In a 6-quart kettle bring 5 quarts salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook until al dente. Reserve 1/3 cup cooking liquid and drain pasta in a colander. Return pasta to kettle with reserved liquid.
While pasta is cooking, in a large heavy skillet heat oil over moderate heat until hot but not smoking and cook broccoli with salt to taste, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, about 30 seconds.
To pasta add broccoli mixture, Brie, and walnuts, tossing until cheese is just melted, and season with salt and pepper.
Serves 2 as a main course.
