Description

Ease into Spring with this vegetarian pasta dish. Many markets sell broccoli crowns, the florets with most of the stem removed. If you can’t find the crowns, purchase whole broccoli and cut off all but 1 inch of stem. But don’t throw away the stems! Pare them with a knife or vegetable peeler, steam them and enjoy as a nutritious snack. Pair with California Sauvignon Blanc or California Pinot Gris.
