Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the farfalle

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the farfalle and cook until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the farfalle, reserving 1 cup pasta cooking water.
While the water heats and the farfalle cooks, prepare the sun-dried tomatoes.

2

Soak the sun-dried tomatoes

In a small bowl, soak the sun-dried tomatoes in very hot tap water until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain, pat dry, and coarsely chop.
While the tomatoes soak, prepare the vegetables.

3

Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Save half the baby broccoli for another use. Trim the root ends from the remaining broccoli; cut the broccoli into 2-inch lengths.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Thinly slice the mushrooms.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the broccoli, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until bright green and just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer to a medium bowl.
In the same pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the broccoli. Do not clean the pan.

4

Make the sauce; finish the pasta

  • Coarsely chop or tear the mozzarella.
  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
In the same pan used for the broccoli and mushrooms, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] butter or oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Whisk in the flour and cook, stirring continuously, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the milk and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, stir in the Parmesan and as many chile flakes as you like, and cook, stirring regularly, until the Parmesan melts and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 1 minute.
Stir in the broccoli-mushroom mixture and sun-dried tomatoes. Add the farfalle and toss to coat; if needed, add the reserved pasta cooking water 1 tablespoon at a time to reach a creamy consistency. Remove from the heat, stir in the mozzarella, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the farfalle to individual bowls, garnish with the basil, and serve.
