Using any kind of quick cooking pasta helps speed up the process of making dinner. You want dinner served quick, right? Choose thin linguini or any kind of pasta! But for this recipe the pretty shape macaroni was used.
I have an attachment to anchovies, but since we're talking vegetarian pasta recipe here, I'll skip the anchovies.
Let's make it taste just like it has anchovies in it without making it taste or smell fishy.
So yeah... fermented soybeans to the rescue. About a tablespoonful or more. The more, the merrier. Mix that in!
Make the pasta from scratch in a your Pasta Machine. No, just kidding. Well, you can if you're really up to it and you want your pasta from scratch.
So we'll just say, get your pasta ready by boiling them according what it says in the package - would really prefer a fresh pasta!
Chop the broccoli and the garlic as shown. Boil the broccoli with enough water to cover them. Add salt to taste. Don't over cook. Once cooked, take them out and put them aside reserving the liquid. Boil the pasta in that water that the broccoli took a bath in. :)
Saute the garlic in a different pan with some oil. Add the fermented soy paste. (If using anchovies, add half of it to the pan.) Put a bit of water to the pan. Boil until garlic are soft. Pour it to the pasta. Then add the broccoli in... Mix 'em in 'til they're all happy together.

My name is Pura. That's pronounced as Poorra with a short 'ooh' sound and an emphasis on the 'r'. Italians call me Poora which is close enough. Spanish folks also call me Poora which is about right. Here in America, they call me Pyura or Pawra - it's a cruel world. Hmm. My mother called me Nene, which means baby girl in Filipino.
