  • 200 g of pasta
  • 1 broccoli
  • 125 g feta cheese
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper


  • Wash the broccoli and cut it into florets. Keep the trunk and leaves. Remove only the damaged end of the broccoli stem (about 1 cm).
  • Boil water with salt. Then add the whole broccoli. After 3 minutes, remove half the broccoli florets. Focus on the pretty parts as they will serve as decoration. Let the rest cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Remove the broccoli but do not discard the water. Mix the broccoli with half the feta cheese, the garlic and the juice of half a lemon. Add salt and pepper.
  • Cook the pasta in the broccoli water. Reserve 10 cl of pasta cooking water taken at the end of cooking. Add some of the pasta water to the feta and broccoli sauce if it is still too thick and blend again.
  • Drain the pasta. Add the remaining broccoli and pour over the sauce. Mix everything well.
  • Serve on a plate. Crumble the remaining feta cheese over the top and add a squeeze of lemon.
