I'm glad your camera was ok Simona.


E' l'ideale per questa stagione: lo proverò.


What a great recipe! I love broccoli... and I'm quite looking forward to seeing all of the entries for this HotM event!


What a great idea. I never thought of cooking broccoli like this, but I bet it's very good. So glad to hear that the camera is ok.


Thanks Maryann.

Ciao Lenny: si' e' ideale col freddo.

Hi Ann, I am too!

Hi Kalyn and thanks. I liked it a lot.


Your broccoli dish looks healthy and delicious. I'm so glad your camera is okay. You have enough to worry about right now.


A lovely bowl of greenery.

I might need to take up the use of broccolo/broccola, in lieu of much ruder words - I too have a habit of leaving good, useful things in the garden to fend for themselves!


molto bella l'idea di questo pure'. Io adoro i broccoli romansechi, ma son di parte ;-)


All the flavor and none of the guilt and reckless fats of creamed broccoli. Looks so, so good for you.

Good that your camera still works, Simona. I would chalk it up to being overloaded by your household move rather than recklessness.


Thanks Christine. Things are getting better and Robert is back.

Thanks Lucy: it looks like my camera was pretty good at fending for itself.

Ciao Francesca, sai che si trovano anche qui?

Thanks Susan. I still can't believe I did that!


Che bella l'idea dietro il tuo blog, insegnare a pronunciare parole italiane mentre scrivi le ricette!
E ho appena letto che anche tu vivi a Berkeley per un po' del tuo tempo! Anch'io sono a Berkeley! Come ti trovi?


Simona, shouldn't you add to your profile that you like words? Great site to discover here thanks to HotM #9.

Susan from Food Blogga

I saw your picture in the round-up and came here to tell you how beautiful it looks. It's hard to make a dish of green look pretty, but you certainly did it!


What a wonderful idea! I've never thought of just puree-ing and eating. Must remember: simple it best!
And lucky you to have it so fresh!

Simona Carini

Ciao Marta e benvenuta. Ci vediamo presto.

Hi Labelga and welcome. Thanks for the good suggestion: I did. In college I studies philology and ever since I have been interested in the way words develop and the connection with the culture.

Thanks Susan: I was pleasantly surprised myself.

Hi Katie. I am sure the freshness was a big factor in delivering flavor.

Ciao Simona,
I like broccoli, although I can't honestly say that pure` di broccoli appeals to me, but maybe I will give your recipe a try.
We sure do get attached to our cell phones and digital cameras, don't we?
What bugs me is when I am trying to photograph a steaming plate and it fogs up the lens. I've tried blowing, but it just doesn't seem to work.

Simona Carini

Ciao Anna Maria. It was a bit of a surprise to me too. I have made it again and I really like it: the grated parmigiano really makes a difference, though. You know, I don't think I have ever encountered the fogging up problem and I am not sure why, since sometimes I photograph dishes that are steaming hot. My big issue with my camera is the lag time: a digital SLR is in my wish list, but I am still not ready to make that investment.

Wine Scamp

Simona, I read your post this afternoon and I simply HAD to come home and make this myself! I threw some fresh basil in the blender and sauteed some garlic cloves with the broccoli, and then mixed the puree up with whole wheat spiral pasta. Delicious!

Thanks for a great vegetable prep idea! I'll use this again soon.


Well, I take this as a great compliment: I mean, inspiring the cooking and eating of deliciously healthy broccoli is an honor. Broccoli and pasta: what a great marriage!
