Ingredients

1 Package KAMUT® Khorasan Penne or Spirals
4 Cups Broccoli Florets
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Small Red Onion, chopped
4 Large Garlic Cloves, minced
3 Medium Roma Tomatoes, diced
1/2 Cup Coarsely Chopped Kalamata Olives

Preparation:

Bring large pot of water to boil.  Add pasta and cook until tender but still firm, about 10 minutes.

Steam broccoli florets until crisp/tender, about 5 minutes.  Rinse under cold water.  Drain, and set aside.

Heat oil in large heavy skillet over medium high heat.  Add onions and sauté for 3 minutes.  Stir in garlic and sauté 1 minute more.  Add tomatoes, olives, wine, oregano and red pepper, and cook 5 minutes.

Drain pasta.  Add pasta and broccoli to tomato mixture.  Toss gently to coat pasta, and cook about 3 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper.  Transfer to large bowl.  Sprinkle with cheese, and serve immediately.
