Recipes–Pasta With Broccoli, Sherry, And Dried Porcini Mushrooms

Broccoli is usually considered a stand-alone side dish vegetable; but with the right complementary ingredients, it can be used in many recipes. 



When a sauce is made of dried mushrooms, garlic, sherry, olive oil, and hot pepper flakes and the broccoli tossed in and served on pasta, the result is perfect and delicious.
