This One-Pot Creamy Broccoli Pasta is a staple in our dinner line up for the kids! Even my kids who don’t “like” broccoli, devour this and it is gluten-free and so easy to make.

  • Prep Time: 2 mins
  • Cook Time: 8 mins
  • Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: Serves 3-4 1x


  • 3 cups gluten-free penne, uncooked
  • 1 cup frozen broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup pasta water, reserved
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I use cheddar!)


  1. Bring a large pot a water to boil and add in the pasta and cook per instructions on box
  2. Add in the broccoli when there are about 4-5 minutes remaining and don’t forget to reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water
  3. Strain pasta and broccoli and add back to pot and add in the butter, water and cheese and mix well
  4. Serve while warm!


*Store leftovers in fridge for 5 days and reheat in microwave or in a pot on the stove with a splash of water/butter

**Feel free to add any seasonings you want as well!
