    From the Test Kitchen

    This unique pasta is inspired by manti, a Turkish dumpling dish that pairs two vibrant sauces: creamy garlic and brown butter-tomato, which you’ll stir together here to coat ribbons of wavy mafalda. Tender bites of broccoli (tossed with herby, bold za'atar seasoning) and crunchy almonds finish it all with hearty, contrasting texture.

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

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up 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. Cut the broccoli into small florets. Transfer to the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and half the za’atar. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 10 to 12 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Turn off the heat. Reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly.

    Meanwhile, peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. In a bowl, whisk together the labneh, cream, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Season with salt and pepper.
