I got the idea for this recipe from a flylady recipe, and then I changed it to be vegan and low-fat.

1 package whole wheat angel hair pasta (Heartland makes good 100% whole wheat pasta)
1/4 c. dried parsley (or the equivalent of fresh)
4 cloves minced garlic
8 c. fresh broccoli (you could combine broccoli with chopped baby carrots, also)

Cook pasta according to package directions. Steam broccoli. Saute parsley and garlic in water until soft (I use water instead of oil to cut down on the fat). Drain pasta and mix with garlic mixture and broccoli. I use a little bit of butter spray on the noodles to help the garlic/parsley mixture coat them. I also spray the broccoli (sometimes--the kids like it better if I do).

I sometimes add more spices (like an italian spice mix or garlic powder).
