5. 2 tbsp chopped celery (ajmud)
6. 1 tbsp alphabet pasta or stellini (or any small pasta)
7. 1 tbsp butter
8. salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1.Heat the oil in a pan, add the onion, garlic, carrots and celery and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.
2.Add the broccoli, pasta, salt and 2.5 cups of hot water and simmer till the pasta has cooked (approx. 5 to 7 minutes).
