I immediately plunge them into boiling water. I will let these stems cook for at least 5 minutes. The time I need to prepare the florets as well, because all this here is going to flavor this water that I will need to give the florets even more flavor and then for other things that I will show you in a little while. Meanwhile, prepare the florets. Of course, all the waste that you add to the water. I cover. Once it starts to boil again, I'm going to dip these broccoli florets into it.

I boiled for 5 minutes, huh! About 5 minutes. Now at this point the foils are going to be submerged. You also add a little salt to it that I hadn't added before. But this right here is just my mistake, huh! First you had to add the salt. 3 - 4 - 5 minutes if you made them a little bigger like I did. Maximum, maximum, maximum...

See you in 3 - 4 minutes. I told you 5 minutes, actually I kept 10 because like all things then, in the kitchen, you have to do the test and I tried to insert the knife and they were very hard. Take and drain. Have you seen? I didn't put out the fire, eh! Because I'm also going to cook

pasta

here in this water. However, in the meantime I withdraw about 1 liter. If the water is low, and in my case the water is low, top it up a bit. I bring it back to a boil and cover. So in a short time you can cook the pasta.

In the meantime I'm going to make this bechamel because it's actually a bechamel. But I do it without butter and without milk. In this way it is decidedly lightened. However, this one here is a béchamel that is very good and can be used in many other preparations. As with butter, we do the same with oil. We make sure that the flour is completely dissolved. Let go a bit and then add the liquid. You can find all the ingredients of this recipe with precise details on www.casapappagallo.it See? The first bubbles begin to form. Perfect: this is the moment when you have to add the liquid.
You see it? It behaves exactly like a normal béchamel sauce. And now I can put it all. Do not add salt because obviously the liquid we use is the water where we cooked the broccoli and it was already salty. When it starts to boil, you will see that it will come quite quickly, leave it for a maximum of 2 - 3 minutes and then turn off the heat. And now we enrich it. The first thing I add is a little cheese. In this case it is from Asiago. Choose the cheese that you like the most. Gorgonzola is also great here.
We will add it both in this kind of béchamel and also in small pieces inside. Then I'm going to add the part that I told you before. It was the slightly harder part and now it's super soft, look! Mh! It's also very tasty, by the way. Perhaps leave the stringy part on one side and add the rest. I also put some florets in because it's nice to have it colored too. And now it's time to mix with the mixer. The important thing, of course, is taste. Mh! Understated, but still lacking in my opinion... A bit of flavor.
Maybe just a little salt. The water is boiling, I'm going to put the pasta. I am using these integral half sleeves but obviously put the pasta that you like the most. This cooks in about 10 minutes, I cook it a maximum of 6 minutes. While the pasta is cooking, in the meantime I'm going to slice some more cheese which I'll then dice. Okay, let's drain the pasta. This is some great pasta, huh! I realize that cooking al dente obviously keeps it better, but it's not that easy to find a whole wheat pasta that stays as well cooked. It really is an excellent pasta.
So... I seasoned with the bechamel sauce. Hoppla! Baking tray. I put a little béchamel on the bottom. And I start to put the pasta. Cover the bottom and then put the broccoli. If they're big, you split them in half, but that's okay. A little cheese... And the béchamel. Let's start again! Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. You go in the oven: 190 ° C for about 20 minutes. Maybe the last 5 minutes put on the grill to get a nice browning. 20 - 25 minutes max, let's go! Here she is. That's the way I like it. But most of all, look at the gold as it is!
And I try it! Pasta, béchamel, broccoli... There is everything! scary smoke! Maybe he smokes too much... One day I want to make a recipe: "Fly, fly, plane!" Maybe it's cold... Mh! Although it's not very hot, really. I advise you to do it because he really deserves it. Until next time! Mh!
