Broccoli Parmesan Pasta
It’s cold and flu season and who doesn’t need a vitamin boost? Here’s a recipe to add some much needed Vitamin C to your winter diet.
Ingredients:

  • 1 head broccoli, trim crown to bite sized pieces
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 16 ounces spaghetti
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil + some extra
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese + extra for topping
  • red pepper flakes
  • black pepper

Method:

  • Bring broth to a boil in a large pot. Add broccoli & cook for about 3 minutes, until it is bright green & tender. Remove with a slotted spoon.
  • Add 3 quarts of water to the hot broth & bring to a boil again. Add pasta & cook to package directions. Drain & toss with some olive oil.
  • Add onion, garlic & 3 tablespoons olive oil to a large sauté pan. Over medium heat cook about 5 minutes until mixture is fragrant & onions are softened. Add broccoli & cook another minute. In a large serving bowl combine all ingredients including parmesan cheese. Season with red & black pepper to taste. Toss well.
  • Top with more parmesan.

And did we mention that there are 132 milligrams of vitamin C with every cup of broccoli? Eat and enjoy…

So did he pop the question over Christmas? Are you now in the throes of planning the day of your dreams? Well i seems that many of our lovely coupels are planning their wedding here in the South of France this year and we are delighted to be involved in so many celebrations.
So what are our 5 Top Tips for planning a South of France wedding?

  1. Venue – This is the key piece of the puzzle and also the most critical in terms of your wedding. Our suggestion is that you use a reputable company to help you find the villa venue of your dreams. There are many owners who will offer their villa to you for your wedding….not all are suitable…..
  2. Budget – Set a realistic budget. This is not the least expensive part of the world and many services are priced accordingly. Do your research.
  3. Rain – Yes, we do have that here….if your chosen venue does not have sufficient space for your guests then you need to think about what happens if the weather is wet – or indeed very hot. The cost of a marquee or tent can save your day
