I have so many recipes waiting to share that I thought I would throw in a quick post today for a really easy pasta dish. I also wanted to make sure that you are listening to Jason Lytle.
Jason Lytle first came onto my radar when a friend put the Grandaddy song “He’s Simple He’s Dumb He’s The Pilot” on a mixtape for me years ago. I was obsessed with that song for the longest time and still love it to bits. Jason Lytle’s solo album Yours Truly, The Commuter was one of my favorite albums of 2009. His latest, ‘Music Meant To Accompany The Art Of Ron Cameron’, is definitely out there. Lytle himself describes the album as “a bunch of shit”. It’s fantastic, messy, weird. I love it and can’t stop playing the song “D.U.I. BBQ Checkpoint”. Definitely go check it out as well as his other stuff if you haven’t already.
You’ll probably have this pasta on the table before the three songs are done.
Lemon Broccoli Pasta
1 lb pasta (I used penne)
2 oz butter
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
2 heads of broccoli, chopped
1 Tbs lemon zest
2 Tbs lemon juice
1/2 cup shredded parmesan, plus extra to serve
sea salt and cracked black pepper
1. Cook the pasta in boiling water according to package directions. Add broccoli for the last 5 minutes of cooking time. Drain and keep warm.
2. Add butter and garlic to the pasta cooking pot and cook for 1 minute. Return the pasta and broccoli to the pan with lemon zest, lemon juice, cheese, salt and pepper. Mix to combine. Top pasta with extra cheese to serve.
Serves 4 to 6

I wanted to put ‘He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s The Pilot’ up for you, but I couldn’t load it. Not sure why. Here’s another good one from Grandaddy.
