Cavatelli & Broccoli

Cavatelli & Broccoli

Another old school Italian classic is the cavatelli and broccoli. It is vegan friendly, and is very simple, healthy, nutritious, and delicious.  Cavatelli differs from most pastas because one of its ingredients is potatoes.  They are usually frozen, but you can buy them fresh.
