  1. I know I'd love this dish, Carol. Years ago we use to frequent a neighborhood restaurant that always featured penne with broccoli. I loved it and your dish is quite similar to it. I really love the food and recipes you feature here. I'll be back often. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
