Tasty Tuesday: Spaghetti with Broccoli and Lemon

This recipe is from Real Simple magazine, and is available on their website as well. I've tried it- twice in fact- and can verify it is very tasty! Enjoy! (I'm including my own picture)

Spaghetti with Broccoli and Lemon
12 ounces spaghetti (3/4 box)
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 1-pound package frozen broccoli florets, thawed
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Kosher salt
1 lemon, zest finely grated and juice squeezed
1 cup grated Parmesan (4 ounces)

Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water, drain the pasta, and return it to the pot.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the broccoli, red pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

Add the broccoli mixture, lemon juice, Parmesan, and the reserved pasta water to the pasta. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until combined and heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with the lemon zest and serve.
