About this recipe: This is a great quick version of an Italian traditional side dish in our family all the way from Italy. You can use fresh tomatoes and Italian basil. However, as a mother of four, I opt for the quick method as I'm sure other parents of small ones can appreciate. The kids really love this dish too. Buon Appetito!


Serves: 4 

  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) olive oil
  • 1 (430g) can diced tomatoes with balsamic vinegar, basil and olive oil
  • 450g broccoli florets
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Pour in the tomatoes with their juices, and simmer until the liquid has reduced by about 1/2. Place the broccoli on top of the tomatoes, and season with a little salt and pepper. Cover, and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender. Do not over cook the broccoli, it should be a vibrant green. Pour into a serving dish, and toss to blend with the sauce before serving.
