CARBOHYDRATES: 59.4G (5.6G SUGARS)
SALT: NO SALT
250g purple sprouting broccoli, halved lengthways
3 tbsp olive oil, plus a drizzle
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
½ red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
Zest and juice ½-1 lemon
Large handful fresh flatleaf parsley, roughly chopped
Handful almonds, toasted in a dry frying pan, to serve (optional)
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the spaghetti and cook according to the pack instructions. Add the broccoli for the last 3 minutes of the cooking time. Drain, then drizzle with olive oil to stop the pasta sticking.
Meanwhile, heat the 3 tbsp oil in a large non-stick frying pan, then add the onion and cook for 6-8 minutes until starting to soften. Add the garlic and chilli, then cook for 3-4 minutes more.
Add the drained broccoli and pasta to the onion mixture and mix well. Season with salt and pepper, adding lemon zest and juice to taste. Stir in the chopped parsley, then serve immediately, scattered with the toasted almonds if you like.
