About Blue Apron

Ba hero

Our menus change every week, so with each delivery you learn to cook inventive new dishes with seasonal ingredients. By letting us source these hard-to-find ingredients for you, you'll get food that is fresher and cheaper than you can get at your local supermarket, and there's no waste because we only send you what you need for each recipe.

We named our company “Blue Apron” because chefs around the world wear blue aprons when they're learning to cook, and it has become a symbol of lifelong learning in cooking. We believe you're never done learning in the kitchen, so we design our menus to ensure you're always learning new cooking techniques, trying new cuisines, and using unique ingredients.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; roughly chop the broccoli. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Peel and thinly slice the shallot.

2 Cook the pasta & broccoli:

Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook 5 to 6 minutes. Add the chopped broccoli and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender when pierced with a fork and the pasta is al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Turn off the heat. Reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water, drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

3 Make the sauce:

While the pasta and broccoli cook, in a medium pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic and sliced shallot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the tomato paste, Italian seasoning, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and fragrant. Add 1/2 cup of water (carefully, as the water may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until combined and slightly reduced in volume.

4 Finish the pasta:

Add the cooked sauce, butter, quark cheese, and half the reserved cooking water to the pot of cooked pasta and broccoli. Cook on medium-high, stirring vigorously, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the pasta is coated. (If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water to achieve your desired consistency.) Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
