Makes 4 servings

• 1 large bunch broccoli, cut into bite-size florets
• 1 jar (8 ounces) oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
• 1 to 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
• 12 large leaves fresh basil, very thinly sliced, or 2 teaspoons dried

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in the penne. Decrease the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the penne is almost tender.
