Broccoli Florets with Bow Tie Pasta

Needed a quick inexpensive meal tonight so I looked in the refrigerator and found broccoli and pine nuts.  Opened up the cupboard and found bow tie pasta.  This will be quick and easy!

1 bag broccoli
1/2 cup pine nuts
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tablespoons earth balance butter
1 box of pasta (I used bow ties)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste


1) Boil water in 2 separate pots and add salt when water begins to boil.  In one pot put the pasta and boil according to the directions on the box.  In the other pot put the broccoli and boil until done 5 minutes, don't allow to get over cooked. 
2) Meanwhile, place pine nuts in 350 degree oven on a piece of foil until they become light brown in color, around 3 minutes.
3) Lastly, drain both pasta and broccoli and place in serving bowl add garlic, butter and Parmesan cheese. Salt and Pepper to taste and serve at once.
