My sweet friend Christine made me this once and I have never forgotten it. It's basically a twist on the typical pasta and spaghetti sauce meal. And a really really good one.'s good. Christine, I can't thank you enough.

  • When pasta is done cooking, drain pasta and set aside
  • In large pan, combine pasta sauce, heavy cream and 1/2 tsp. salt and heat it up
  • While that's heating up, chop up your broccoli and saute' it with olive oil until it starts to brown
