Broccoli is so good for you! To make a version you like best, try experimenting with the veggie to pasta ratio. 它 The edible flowers in the photos are from the Wheeler Farm Farmers Market in Salt Lake City, and I love them so much!

A pinch of ground mustard seed added to cooked broccoli activates the enzyme myrosinase which makes sulforaphane which is ridiculously good for you, anti-inflammatory, fights cancer, and can cross the blood-brain barrier. The same strategy applies to all cruciferous vegetables (i.e. cabbage, kale, collards or Brussels sprouts) back to any that have been cooked.
