Servings 4


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 16- ounce package of your favorite pasta
  • 3/4 cup whole-milk plain yogurt or dairy-free alternative
  • 1 pound broccoli cut into bite-sized florets
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 3/4 cups chicken broth or broth of choice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese


  • Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add diced onion and minced garlic to the pan and sauté for 3-4 minutes until fragrant. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Add dry pasta, yogurt, broccoli, broth, red pepper flakes, and a little more olive oil to the pan. Stir well to prevent sticking.
  • Cover the pot and reduce heat to medium-low. Let the pasta cook until the liquid is absorbed and noodles are al dente, about 11 minutes (but cooking time may vary).
  • Once pasta is cooked, remove the cover and stir in 3/4 cup of shredded Parmigiano Reggiano cheese until fully combined.
  • Serve the pasta topped with remaining cheese. Enjoy! Any leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to one week in an airtight container.
