tips & techniques
Prepare & roast the broccoli:
1 Prepare & roast the broccoli:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Line a sheet pan with foil. Wash and dry the broccoli; cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the stem, then roughly chop the broccoli. Transfer to the sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

While the broccoli roasts, peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). Roughly chop the olives and peppers.

3 Cook the pasta:

While the broccoli continues to roast, using your hands, separate the sheets of pasta. Add to the pot of boiling water. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite).
