Rigatoni with broccoli, mushrooms and salami: recipe
Here’s how to do it: First, put well-salted water in a saucepan and cook the pasta almost al dente, then drain. While cooking, pour out a few ladlefuls of the pasta water.
Now clean the mushrooms with a damp cloth and wash the broccoli under cold water. Cut the mushrooms into eighths and the broccoli into bite-sized florets. They can also use the stem parts if they slice it thinly or use it for soup some other time.
Onion is cut into small cubes, salami too, garlic is cut into thin slices.
Now heat the oil in a pan and add the onion and half the salami and fry for a few minutes until everything is colored. Then add the remaining salami, garlic, broccoli and mushrooms to the pan and fry for a few minutes. Season carefully with salt and plenty of pepper.

Before the garlic gets too dark, remove the contents of the pan from the pasta water with a slotted spoon and let it simmer for another minute or two. Then add the pasta, half of the parmesan and half of the pasta water with a ladle.
The pasta should now cook with the vegetables in the pasta water. The starch and parmesan create a creamy sauce that surrounds the pasta and vegetables.
Then transfer the pasta and vegetables to two plates, sprinkle everything except the remaining parmesan and enjoy the rigatoni with salami, mushrooms and broccoli.
Enjoy your meal!
