Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water, drain the pasta, and return it to the pot.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the broccoli, red pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the broccoli mixture, lemon juice, Parmesan, and the reserved pasta water to the pasta. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until combined and heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with the lemon zest and serve.
Ehhh.Not the best recipe I ever tried to make. It was kind of bland and I didn't really care for the lemon zest on top. It was dry, so I had to add chicken broth. It needs something more. If I attempt to make it again I will probably add mushrooms and tomatoes.
I tweaked this a bit because I thought it needed more flavor. Added white wine, chicken broth, and artichokes. A very good light dish and you can pretty much add anything like chicken or other veggies.
